The Course

Students will develop three key interrelated spheres of leadership:

  • Personal growth and discipline
  • Team dynamics and performance
  • Organisational innovation and growth


The Master of Leadership consists of 12 subjects, including 4 core subjects and a capstone project. Entry into the Master of Leadership requires a bachelor degree (or similar) and a minimum of three years’ of relevant leadership experience. For leaders without a bachelor degree, entry into the Master of Leadership is available through the Graduate Certificate in Leadership.

“Everything that I have studied has helped, particularly the leadership subjects. They have given me a really strong grounding and foundation for what’s next.”

“The program stimulates discussion that helps all of us process new ideas and information. Arriving at the point where new information is transformed into digested knowledge and understanding, it’s like a train bursting from long dark tunnel into the summer sun!”
