Applied Management & Leadership

This exciting new MSc programme is focused on developing the critical areas of management, HRM and leadership, with a particular focus on applying best practice in these areas, in the real world.

Managing and leading others are vital competencies for successful managers to develop and apply in their organisations and careers. Regardless of the level you are at within your organisation, we believe all those with responsibility for other people, need to build their own strengths, style and approach as they manage processes and lead people to achieve their best performance. The programme delivery is based on a practical, innovative, action learning approach which is designed to make a real impact on the confidence, knowledge and learning of all participants.

The practical focus which underlies the overall programme design concentrates on the personal and professional development of participants by honing their analytical, conceptual and interpersonal skills and building a detailed understanding of the tools and frameworks to support advanced management leadership capability.

•Lead others through change, while understanding the psychology of different approaches within the team, ensuring they work to their own strengths
