Key facts

Our structured pathway offers you the chance to tailor your learning experience within the leadership and security aspect of leadership and management. 

Cranfield University 's Leadership and Security - Leadership and Management Pathway course approaches the study of leadership and management from a security prism and is therefore distinctly different from the domain of commercial and business variants of management courses. The Leadership and Security Pathway is competitively priced and run entirely online, thereby offering global reach and additional flexibility in how students engage with the taught component and manage their time between professional and academic commitments. 

The programme provides innovation in the concept and delivery. All streams have common core modules providing essential professional competencies and all five of these core modules are delivered entirely at a distance across all streams providing flexibility for the learner. Each stream further provides depth in specialist topics aligned with their relevant range of disciplines. 

Many of the elective modules are delivered as residential modules. These combine face to face lecturing, workshops and group work with use of our facilities including laboratories, simulation labs, and computer labs as examples

Your career

The course opens doors for those seeking a career in defence and broader security related professions, opportunities in international organisations, public, private or third sector organisations. The course also provides intellectual broadening, thereby opening up the opportunity for vertical and horizontal career development or transitioning to new and different career tracks for those already engaged in these professions.

  • Decision Analysis and Support
