Programme Highlights

  • Edinburgh Napier University - Top 10 in the UK for the employability
  • Part-time; 2 years; 7 modules plus dissertation
  • Equip students with essential knowledge and skills to become a business leader
  • Develop skills in leadership and change management

The MSc in Managerial Leadership is an innovative and exciting graduate level programme in Hong Kong addressing the dual needs of leadership/change management training and industry-specific skills for today’s managerial executives in Hong Kong.

Successful managers in organisations need the ability to see the importance of integrating the activities of the various specialist functions that contribute to the achievement of corporate objectives. The thrust of this programme is to facilitate that breadth of view and openness of thought that makes managers effective teamplayers. In addition to this managers need to have the leadership confidence to identify, embrace and implement change within their organisations. The aim of this programme is to prepare our graduates to exhibit these qualities.

In today’s business world managers and leaders are always expected to excel in the art of management in every business endeavour, given the unpredictable nature of external market events. Effective managers must manage projects and activities in the context of the inherently unpredictable business environment. At the same time managers are increasingly required to lead people effectively. In essence, to be successful, it is imperative that organisations possess people with leadership ability to further the transformation of organisation as well as planning and managing its daily activities.

The MSc Managerial Leadership programme is the ideal programme to equip you with essential knowledge and skills as a business leader.
