The Warwick Executive Diploma in Strategic Leadership

Reach the next level of leadership within volatile, rapidly changing and uncertain contexts

Today’s leaders have already enjoyed significant career success but are now operating in an environment where the pace of change requires them to have an even greater ability to understand themselves, inspire others, and to challenge their existing view of the world.

This masters-level postgraduate programme directly links leadership with strategy, and the personal with the professional. Today, strategy is no longer a top-down activity but is the responsibility of many people within an organisation, demanding a culture of strategic innovation and openness. In becoming a more Strategic Leader you will be able to connect your leadership imperative with the culture and practice of the wider organisation, thereby delivering sustained impact and influence through individuals, teams and business units.

As a participant on the Strategic Leadership Executive Diploma, you will receive three high level 1-2-1 Executive coaching sessions during your time on the programme. As a Senior Leader, if you are already receiving Executive Coaching, we will liaise with your Coach to complement the existing sessions you are receiving.
