Executive Master in Leadership, Strategy and Innovation (E-Learning)

Provided by Kaplan Higher Education Academy


Awarded by Murdoch University

Course introduction


Effective leadership is no longer simply about managing individual disciplines such as HR, marketing and finance. It is about bringing them together. You must nurture integration, collaboration and change to improve individual and team performance. This is the foundation of our Executive Master in Leadership, Strategy and Innovation (EMLSI) Degree Programme. We live and work in a new era of interconnected, international business, defined by new products and technologies that demand new business models and strategies for profit generation and value creation. It means that leaders today need to think and work differently. Innovation and integration are now leadership imperatives, which leads us to ask business, government and academia the question: what kind of development do the leaders of tomorrow actually want and need?
