You can look forward to:

Major Change Initiative

A core feature of the programme is the design, delivery and analysis of a major change initiative in your organisation. This allows for a quantifiable impact on your organisation.

Personal Tutor

An expert tutor will give you guidance on your change project and your own personal development throughout the programme, acting as a sounding board for ideas and challenges while reflecting back past experiences and best-practice case studies.

Peer and Expert Strategic Review

There are several evaluation points within the programme journey that will allow you to make adjustments as required, either in your personal leadership development or your change project.

Secure Conversations

By virtue of the seniority in the room, significant conversations can be had with your peers that are conducted in total privacy, allowing you to formulate, adapt and change your thinking based on the concrete experiences of other senior leaders.

Strategic Space

You will be given the time and space to create organisation defining strategies. You will be out of the office on one Thursday or Friday of each month. This investment of your time is treated as such – an investment – and each moment is geared towards delivering a return on it.

World-Leading Experts

Throughout the programme, leading experts from around the world will give keynote sessions to the select group of participants, allowing you to engage and brainstorm with some of the world’s leading business figures.

Success stories

For Gareth Healy, Group Sales Director at the Healy Group, the MSc in Management Practice brought him on a personal journey as a leader and supported him opening up new revenue streams.
