THE University of Bristol is offering free places on its part-time Masters in Strategy, Change and Leadership for aspiring senior managers.
The course, which is in its second year, is designed to fit around the demands of a busy job.
Today’s leaders are facing the most challenging circumstances for a generation. The necessary skills and competencies have shifted from the motivation of employees in a buoyant economy to change management and strategic leadership in a landscape of budget cuts, increased hours, more sophisticated technology and leaner workforces.
Few organisations have escaped these changes, whether they are in the private, public or not-for-profit sectors.
The Masters degree is aimed at providing senior managers with the tools and techniques they require in order to navigate their organisations through such demanding times.
Programme director Helen Ballard said: “I am delighted we have the funding to offer free places again this year as we have had an extremely high level of interest amongst managers and senior executives from a wide range of industry backgrounds.
"Excellent leadership is critical in this challenging climate, and high performing organisations are recognising the need to further develop their managers. This practical Masters degree offers a return on investment from day one."
An open evening will be taking place on Wednesday April 20, 2016.
