The Strategy, Change and Leadership programme from the University of Bristol  will give you the tools and the knowledge to lead high-performing teams, drive organisational change and develop robust strategic direction.

You will gain a broad perspective of the complexities within organisations and the issues affecting success and failure. The executive master's will help you to understand how to enhance your own impact as a leader, develop a deep understanding of how to deal with change and uncertainty, and increase your ability to think about organisational issues and opportunities in different ways.

The programme is delivered through intensive three-day workshops, designed to make a difference to your professional practice month by month. The course is structured to suit busy managers, enabling you to engage in part-time studies whilst performing your demanding work role.
