Learning and assessment
During this course you’ll examine how different leaders operate, how you can employ different project management tactics, and how you can create systems to achieve operational goals.
As well as leadership and project management, you’ll also study strategic planning, finance and managing resources. You’ll explore coaching and mentoring and learn how to support staff on a one-to-one or one-to-many basis.
You’ll gain extensive research skills, allowing you to question the evidence people are using to make decisions, and find solutions of your own. During this programme you will also have the opportunity to specialise in areas like managing clinical trials and have the flexibility to do independent studies.
Before you finish this course you will also write a dissertation, which enables you to develop a more specialised and deeper understanding of management in your chosen field. This is an opportunity to identify areas of particular interest and tackle them with the support of management experts.
