Graduate destinations

The skills developed on the programme are vital for leadership and continued career progression across multiple sectors.  Post-completion, you will be prepared for positions of increased responsibility enabling you to lead in innovative, responsive business settings.

Our links with multiple sectors (Industry, Policing, Local Authority, Third Sector) have been used to guide and focus the creation of this programme, ensuring that it is aligned with the skills demands of employers. The competencies that will be developed here are those identified by these sectors as underpinning characteristics of effective leaders and managers.

It is also intended that the programme helps you develop your interest and understanding of the benefits and contribution of research and the development of case studies in a professional/work context.  It is hoped that this will encourage and inspire some participants to continue postgraduate study and develop research ideas, perhaps at a MSc Masters or PhD/Doctoral level.
