Course Summary

Course overview:

You develop the knowledge, skills and awareness to empower others to make an effective contribution to the leadership and management of your organisation.

Aligning assignments to your current work challenges, you critically evaluate contemporary issues, theoretical approaches and perspectives on leadership in organisations. You gain the skills to lead a workforce in a complex, dynamic and increasingly global organisational environment, applying theory to everyday situations to consult on, manage and lead a range of projects, issues and initiatives related to your organisation.

We have collaborated with leaders from large and small corporates, the public sector and social enterprises to integrate their global insights around leadership and development challenges into the programme content and delivery style.

How you learn:

The course emphasises putting knowledge into action, allowing you to be aware of the role of business in society. This course is experimental, you learn with and through your peers to develop solutions to real-world leadership and coaching challenges within organisations. Use of learning technologies has a major role to play within the course allowing you to be engaged outside of the physical classroom and to be exposed to the latest developments in leadership. A research-informed approach includes professional and applied research, delivered by a vast network of business professionals who engage with the course through guest lectures and projects.

How you are assessed:

You are assessed in a range of methods, including case study analysis, presentations, self-diagnostic assessments, reflective reports and a research proposal and associated dissertation.

Career opportunities:

Graduates move into general or senior management/leadership roles, internal consultant/project leadership roles or into external consultancy.

This course is aimed at those students who have already identified a preference for studying the concepts, theory and practice of leadership and those who seek a distinctive postgraduate title within the diverse field of leadership. It is appropriate for those students who wish to pursue a career in industry, commerce, the public sector, or the voluntary sector, including those wishing to become independent leadership consultants. Therefore, graduates from this course may find work across a range of roles within general management or business and will also be equipped for enterprise, starting their own business and eventually employing their own staff.

Modules

You critically evaluate organisational design, change and development, and develop an understanding of organisational change through the theories and conceptual frameworks of organisation design and the principles and practices of organisational development.
