As a leader or manager in a local or international organization, you carry a lot of responsibility. The job of making things happen often falls on your shoulders. And in your busy organization, a lot of things are happening. The Graduate Diploma in Project Management and Organizational Leadership from Royal Roads University sets you up for success, in a Canadian or a global business context.


You’re seeing change management initiatives, project negotiations and changing team dynamics. You know these situations call for exemplary leadership. And you want to rise to the challenges they present.

You’ll learn from leading-edge instructors. They'll guide you through the fundamentals and finer points of both project management and leadership.

You’ll build hands-on project management skills, and learn about best practices in project leadership, team dynamics and negotiations. And you’ll build a knowledge base about relevant topics including restructuring, policy, technological advances, political change, ethical issues, succession planning and more.

You’ll also develop your own leadership skills,  with the help of your instructors and your cohort colleagues. You'll gain vision, courage, partnerships and networks, which will give you the energy and perseverance to lead your organization, and face obstacles wherever you are.

Through your learning, you’ll become the kind of leader who inspires teams to work together. Whether your goal is to make change in your organization, or make change in your entire life, you'll find the skills and connections to make it happen.
