About the course
Today’s leaders have already enjoyed significant career success but are now operating in an environment where the pace of change requires them to have an even greater ability to understand themselves, inspire others, and to challenge their existing view of the world.
This masters-level postgraduate programme directly links leadership with strategy, and the personal with the professional. Today, strategy is no longer a top-down activity but is the responsibility of many people within an organisation, demanding a culture of strategic innovation and openness. In becoming a more Strategic Leader you will be able to connect your leadership imperative with the culture and practice of the wider organisation, thereby delivering sustained impact and influence through individuals, teams and business units.
The Warwick Diploma in Strategic Leadership has been designed to offer immediate impact and long term development for individuals and organisations.
