In partnership with Robert Kennedy College in Switzerland, York St John University is now offering one of the most innovative postgraduate programmes available, the MA in Leading Innovation and Change, to managers and leaders throughout the world. The programme, which includes a compulsory one-week residency in Zürich, can be completed in 12 months.
Innovation and change are more than just words; they are critical challenges in today’s workplace. Leadership of innovation and change can make the difference between success and failure. The MA in Leading Innovation and Change (MALIC) programme is designed to support experienced managers for whom the opportunity to network with other leaders will contribute to widening and developing career and personal leadership qualities. It is intended for those who already hold a position of influence in managing innovation and change, or those whose current role will include leadership in the future.
“Doing the business” is much more challenging than talking about it, which is why commentators note how innovative and transforming things done at York St John are. The executive-style delivery provides Master classes from established and knowledgeable academics, wisdom from experienced change managers, and lessons from innovators. You will also get a chance to meet other leaders from the public and private sectors who are facing similar challenges to those of your organisation, and to work on facilitated real-life, action-based projects.
Minimum 12 months, maximum 3 years.
