Leadership for Sustainable Development

This innovative conversion Masters programme is open to applicants from all disciplinary backgrounds and promotes leadership and embraces action-based, experiential learning, facilitated through a series of lectures, work placements and group projects.

The programme of three eight-week placements in the NGO, governance and business and finance sectors can be carried out locally or internationally. These aim to help students become sustainable development 'champions' who can identify and address problems of sustainability in innovative ways and further mainstream sustainable development across all sectors and at all levels. The year-long group project requires several students to work with an organisation of their choice to explore sustainable solutions to a specific problem.
