MA Leadership and Management

The Course Programme Structure Staff Profiles Why YSJ ?

 

If you want to develop your understanding of strategic leadership and management, and transfer this learning into pragmatic and productive knowledge, skills and abilities, this is the programme for you. The Postgraduate  Diploma/MA programme covers a wide range of leadership and management  contexts and perspectives. It will appeal to those who already work, or want to work, in the public, private or voluntary sector. The programme welcomes home, European and International students, to generate a rich  cultural diversity in the learning group and enable students to grasp key issues around globalisation and business ethics.

Most students will register for and complete the MA programme. Applicants who enrol for the Postgraduate Diploma can progress to the MA dissertation on successful completion of module assignments.
