Strategic Leadership MSc prospectus

A three-year part-time Masters programme

Download the 2021 prospectus here.

On 9 October 2020 the application window for the 6th student intake on to this award-winning masters programme opens.

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. The delivery of the apprentice route to non-levy payers is a new development this year which may be attractive to smaller firms who are eligible.  More information can be found in the prospectus.

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, plus a Level 7 CMI accreditation in Leadership & Management.
