About this programme
Unlock your strategic leadership potential with this dynamic, learner-focused programme.
Offered on both a full-time and part-time basis, the University of Gibraltar’s MA in Leadership and Management is a career-focused programme aimed at aspiring leaders within the civil service and private sector.
Designed to enhance your professional skills and support government and industry operating at the highest possible level, this programme will introduce you to advanced management theory and leadership techniques.
The programme’s blended approach will place you at the heart of the learning experience by providing you with the opportunity to undertake a mix of both online and face-to-face modules.
Much of the study will focus on ‘live’ workplace issues that allow you to apply taught theory to your career and examine the practice of leadership and management informed by contemporary theory and practice. Small class numbers, participative face-to-face classes and live webinars with academics and global peer groups for the online modules ensure you will benefit from a highly personal learning experience.
Face to face teaching
We are committed to providing an excellent learning experience that is personal and participative. That’s why we have decided to continue the face-to-face delivery of our programmes.
Delivered by expert teaching staff and industry experts, the full-time mode is a one-year accelerated programme that usually requires a commitment of sixteen hours class time a week. You will also have the option to tailor your programme by selecting specialist elective modules.
The part-time study mode is designed to fit around your career and typically requires a commitment of eight hours class time a week over two evenings.
Electives for the MA in Leadership and Management aim to provide you with the opportunity to enhance your leadership and management knowledge in specific areas of interest. In meeting elective credit requirements, you will have the opportunity to select up to two modules delivered face-to-face at the University of Gibraltar or, up to four online modules delivered via King’s College London’s International School for Government.
