The Master of Business in Innovation and Leadership offered by the Atlantic Technological University is designed to develop the leadership talent of managers to deliver significant business impact in their organisations.


The part-time Innovation and Leadership programme at the Atlantic Technological University has been developed in consultation with industry. It aims to substantially develop the capability of executive managers as innovating leaders within their organisations.

The course is structured over two years, and delivered over two day blocks with additional online learning. An integral part of the programme is action learning within the candidate’s own workplace. This approach enhances the use of specialist knowledge in practice and recognises the shared relationship between management theory and professional practice.

The programme creates an environment in which participants can engage in knowledge development based on their work context. It is essentially a practical programme, with rigorous theoretical underpinnings, which draws on the real life experience of its participants.
