An Executive MBA taster session where you will learn more about the EMBA and hear from one of our faculty in a Mini-Masterclass.

Tuesday 27 October 2020


Delivered by an internationally renowned faculty over two years, our triple-accredited Executive MBA programme combines advanced academic theory and practical application with one-to-one coaching in small but diverse classes.

You can get a taste of the MBA programme in this specialist talk by Susan Murphy and an overview of the programme and application requirements by its Programme Director.

Leaders in Crisis

Covid-19 has challenged political leaders across the globe. And for every country and political party, there is a different leadership model at play. This talk will look at politics without the politics. How have different political leaders handled the crisis? What management models are they displaying? And what does our research into management theory predict will be the outcome?

During this interactive session, we will discuss what leaders need to do moving forward and what it will take to continue working under uncertainty. Examples of how specific organisations have handled past crises as well as the current crisis will guide the evening's discussion.
