Course Summary

This course cultivates an appreciation of the crucial relationship between strategic communication and leadership. This understanding is explored through a consideration of the role contemporary leaders should play in addressing urgent and complex challenges facing society.

On this course particular attention is given to sustainability issues developing you as a global business practitioner, with intercultural sensitivity and environmental awareness. You’ll explore the challenges of clean growth through circular economic thinking and the responsible management of resource and sustainability.
