1 Year - Executive Master in Leadership, Strategy and Innovation (100% Online)

1-Year Executive Master in Leadership, Strategy and Innovation (E-learning)

The role of leaders has changed. Effective leadership is no longer simply about managing individual disciplines, from HR to marketing to finance. It is about bringing them together. You must nurture integration, collaboration and change to improve individual and team performance. This is the inspiration for our Executive Master in Leadership, Strategy and Innovation (E-learning).

We live and work in a new era of interconnected, international business, defined by new products and new technologies that demand new business models and strategies for profit generation and value creation. It means that, today, leaders need to think and work differently. Innovation and integration are now leadership imperatives which led us to ask business, government and academia the question: what kind of development do the leaders of tomorrow actually want and need?

This Postgraduate programme has been created – from the ground up – for aspiring leaders with a minimum of three years supervisory experience from the private, public and not-for-profit sectors across the Asia Pacific. It is designed for professionals looking to move into higher levels of management in their particular field. The programme integrates the three thematic areas of Leadership, Strategy and Innovation.
