It is designed to sharpen students’ ability to think strategically, to evaluate organisational situations from a strategic perspective and to reach sound strategic decisions.
The aim of this module is to consolidate students’ learning acquired throughout their MA into a single Capstone Project. Students will carry out an independent study on a topic of their choice. They will have the opportunity to apply the comprehensive theoretical knowledge, understanding and skills that they obtained throughout the MA to an area of interest within either their own workplace setting, an organisation of their own choosing or an agreed large public sector department.

Much of the study will focus on ‘live’ workplace issues that allow you to apply taught theory to your career and examine the practice of leadership and management informed by contemporary theory and practice. Small class numbers, participative face-to-face classes and live webinars with academics and global peer groups for the online modules ensure you will benefit from a highly personal learning experience.
The main target audience for the MA are those professionals who wish to enhance their career prospects, as well as recent graduates who have undertaken meaningful placements or work experience. The MA will provide high-level application skills across key aspects of leadership and management as well as the opportunity to apply the learning in a chosen area of interest. It will also benefit those for whom their undergraduate degree was not in a business-related area (e.g. pharmaceutical, engineering, medical and healthcare, education). By providing a comprehensive grounding in leadership and management, it thus paves the way for professionals to attain leadership and management positions within their existing fields.
