Strategic Leadership prospectus

A three-year part-time Masters programme

Download the 2019 prospectus here.


On 15 April 2019 the application window for the 5th student intake on to this award-winning masters programme will open.

The programme equips the leaders of tomorrow with the skills and knowledge they need to meet the leadership and management challenges found in a competitive and highly regulated market.

It is offered as a traditional MSc or as a Level 7 Senior Leaders Apprenticeship which employers can fund from their Apprenticeship Levy. 

Whichever route is chosen, the students study together, the content of the Masters Degree is the same, as is the University MSc assessment.  More details about employer and student requirements for the apprenticeship can be found in the prospectus.

On successful completion students will receive an MSc in Strategic Leadership from Loughborough University, along with a professional qualification from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).
