You don't need any formal qualifications to enrol, but you should be 18+ with at least two years' full-time (or three years' part-time) work experience.

 

Course content

Your course is fully online and covers 3 in-depth units.

  • Developing Critical Thinking

You'll learn to critically assess your own beliefs, attitudes and value systems, and evaluate the validity and usefulness of management theories in relation to these.

  • Leading Innovation and Change

You'll learn to identify the need for change and master the art of proposing, managing and leading innovation using practical tools and leadership models.

  • Developing Your Leadership Styles

You'll first fully understand the benefits and impact of effective leadership.

You'll then become aware of the effect your specific leadership style has on you, your teams and your organisation, and assess your leadership behaviour in terms of the factors which determine effective leadership.

Finally, you'll learn to develop your leadership style and effectiveness and become a truly inspirational leader.
