Course summary

Course summary

Co-created with Cumbrian industrial partners, MSc Industrial Leadership will help you develop the learning and behaviours required to fulfill senior leadership roles within industrial settings.

It will provide access to transformative leadership skills to proficient or expert technical specialists who are looking to enhance their expertise and proficiency in leadership and management behaviours and the skills to manage and develop businesses in an industrial setting.

Course summary

The programme has a particular focus on a transformative style of leadership, giving individuals the ability to reflect and develop their own leadership behaviours, coach and mentor others, and develop key skills to lead different aspects of their business, including project management (with or without a focus on nuclear); operational excellence; innovation and design; operating in a controlled environment; and commercial, legal and finance.

Graduate destinations

The skills developed on the programme are vital for leadership and continued career progression across industrial settings. Post-completion, you will be prepared for positions of increased responsibility enabling you to lead in innovative, responsive business settings.

Our links with industry have been used to guide and focus the creation of this programme, ensuring that it is aligned with the skills demands of employers. The competencies that will be developed here are those identified by industry as underpinning characteristics of effective leaders and managers.

It is also intended that the programme helps you develop your interest and understanding of the benefits and contribution of research and the development of case studies in a professional/work context. It is hoped that this will encourage and inspire some participants to continue postgraduate study and develop research ideas, perhaps at a MSc Masters or PhD/Doctoral level.
