This unit is designed for students undertaking studies in leadership. The purpose of the unit is to explore the relevance of leadership theory to students’ experience of real world issues. In particular, this unit will focus on leadership under pressure, in times of crisis, and in response to global issues such as sustainability, terrorist activity, and the ethical behaviour of leaders. The unit will be taught in three blocks of two days so that contemporary leadership events can be tracked to explore their dynamic nature and emerging complexity. Students will be encouraged to develop enriched case studies of contemporary issues that allow them to apply course theories and explore leadership in ‘real’ situations.


Case presentation 1 50%, Case presentation 2 50%

Participation: In normal circumstances, students will have to attend and participate in all three blocks to satisfy the requirements of the unit.
