Leadership in Action
The Leadership in Action module runs throughout the year and allows you to gain international consulting experience.
The focus of the module is on developing your leadership potential, through managing a real design thinking consulting project from inception to completion in a global context. Drawing on the knowledge and skills learnt throughout the programme, you will apply problem solving techniques to a complex and challenging business problem, and apply your learning by developing a product or service.
As part of the module you will travel abroad to Brazil or India for a week, test your business model in a different cultural and socioeconomic environment and deliver a solution to the client. You will be coached and mentored throughout the project by faculty and will complete the module by writing an individual reflective piece around your learning.
This fully immersive module will form the backbone of the programme and will give you an understanding of how to perform effectively as individuals, within a team and within an organisation. The module will raise global awareness through experiencing first-hand how socioeconomic and cultural differences can affect the way that business is conducted in another country.
