  • group project work
  • individual study

A comprehensive strand of leadership and managerial skills is built into the programme.

Taking on the role of a professional consultant at your own organisation, you’ll explore a real business issue that’s of interest to you and your employer. You’ll enhance your learning by applying it to your chosen issue and developing practical solutions.
