Master of Leadership
Course summary for international students
|Award granted ||Master of Leadership|
|Deakin course code ||M738|
The Master of Leadership is designed to create a deep understanding, at both tacit and explicit levels, of this important organisational role. The course is largely experiential and is aimed at fostering cognitive and behavioural habits which lead to appropriate actions where innovation and influence are required. Course content is underpinned with an exploration of current directions in thinking and research in this very dynamic field of research.
The course embraces a variety of approaches to teaching and learning ranging from didactic (l-Lectures, course notes, formal assessment, etc).) to experiential (intensive residential units) and includes study and reflection on personal challenges, for example, in an outdoor ‘adventure’ program in the Audacious Leadership unit.
As a graduate of Deakin’s Master of Leadership you will have developed an awareness of your own leadership styles, strengths and weaknesses. You will also develop an appreciation of the way leadership operates at different levels, and in different contexts, as a key success factor in enterprises.
