MBA Leadership

Taught in a central London location, our MBA Leadership course has a strong focus on career advancement and is delivered by experienced professors from leading business schools around the world. We’ve developed this course with a unique peer coaching model where you are supported outside of the classroom and have access to your tutor for any challenge you may face at work or during your studies.

Executive Mentoring

In addition to covering core business fundamentals, a strong emphasis of the programme is developing the behavioural competencies of delegates. This is achieved through a behavioural executive competency skill based model, proven to be highly effective in the corporate world.

During the normal working week, delegates are encouraged to hold regular face to face and virtual meetings with the teaching professors to discuss real world issues arising in their professional role which relate to the theory on the course.
