Today we are facing a revolution in leadership around the world.

This highly praised and unique Masters programme provides those involved in ‘leading’ an opportunity to explore leadership in general and their own leadership in particular, in challenging and exciting ways.

It engages the depth of the latest academic research across a wide spectrum of disciplines from international business and management studies to the creative arts and from philosophy to psychotherapy, enabling you to examine how your leadership changes as the context changes.

You will build on your experience to develop a dynamic, flexible approach to the challenges of leadership for today and for the future.

This is a part time degree programme spread over 18 months, enabling students to continue working whilst studying for their professional Masters degree.

Three years in development and now in its third successful year of teaching, the programme has been life changing for many students and is quickly setting a new standard in leadership studies.



The programme is structured in five phases (intensives), spread over a period of 18 months.


The programme comprises a unique combination of five ‘intensives’, taught over 5 teaching weeks, separated by twelve weeks back in your role.

Intensive One

Awakening: Leading Yourself
Self awareness is vital to good leadership and the first week’s intensive will explore how this is effectively achieved.

Intensive Two

Re-ordering: Leading in Context
In the second intensive the relationship between leading and context will be examined in-depth using insights from philosophy, art and the social sciences.

Intensive Three

Connecting: Leading in a Relational World
The connectedness of the modern world through globalisation and technology requires leaders to be able to handle complexity. You will learn how to master complexity theory and utilise its insights in your own problem-solving and sense making.

Intensive Four

Embodiment: Leading Change
Using theatre techniques and modern mediation practices you will examine the nature of change: its impact on you and others and how you can embody changes that you initiate as a leader.

Intensive Five

Synthesis: Leading into the Future
This final intensive begins by exploring how you see ‘round the curve’ and are effective in preparing people for the future.

Study methods

The programme comprises five ‘intensive’ phases over five individual weeks, spread over a year.
This is complemented by distance learning, with support from a personal mentor, enabling you to work on real issues from your personal work environment.

Each ‘intensive’ explores a different theme and assignments are then linked to your work context. During the group sessions, you will be learning through a range of interactive techniques, including simulations, workshops and debates, which provide for a rich resource of scholarship and practices for students.

The expert academics and practitioners come from a wide spectrum of backgrounds, providing a superb practical and stimulating support network, from which you continue to benefit way beyond the programme duration.
