The Master of Arts - Leadership and Strategy is a two-year part-time programme in which students take subjects that are integral to effective leadership and strategy formulation and undertake a significant piece of academic research. Both public and private sector organisations need leaders with expertise in the HR, strategic, and financial components of organisational life. This programme aims to provide that expertise. Audience This programme has wide appeal, but it is particularly relevant to those whose professional life involves making and executing decisions. As with the other MA programmes, students study through a blend of distance education and intensive weekend seminars at the IPA. Students can, therefore, pursue this programme no matter where they live and can remain in full-time employment.
