Diversity is a defining characteristic of our time, affecting every element of our society, from politics and press to education and the economy. In our globally connected world, the need to understand the impact and dynamics of diversity in local areas is more important now than ever before.

This Global Diversity Governance course at Coventry University provides you with the opportunities to develop the skills, understanding and global perspectives that should enable you to successfully manage cultural diversity and create lasting, positive change in your own communities and organisations.

Career prospects 

Working effectively with diversity and cultural difference is a core requirement of almost every career path in public, private and voluntary sectors around the world – as important for charity managers in Africa and Asia as it is to senior police teams in Europe or youth and community across the world. Our MPA is designed to enhance the skills and understanding of professionals working in, with and for diverse communities. You will leave the programme with not only an enhanced CV and career prospects but with the networks, confidence and competence to create positive change in the communities they serve.

The MPA in Global Diversity Governance offers professionals an unparalleled opportunity to build their understanding of the challenges and opportunities presented by global diversity.
