Business Management with Leadership

Overview

Managing a business is one thing, but leading it takes something special. It takes much more than just managing day-to-day operations in order to realise a profit. This course will help you become the driving force behind a business, enabling you to lead people and develop their talent. We will teach you how to look at businesses from a strategic point of view, enabling you to see all the elements of a business and how to effectively manage and lead them - both within your organisation and your supply chain.
You will be taught by staff with plenty of leadership experience, as well as those who have studied the subject academically to a Doctor of Business Leadership level. These practitioners have worked in high positions within human resources, and will bring their experience to aid your learning.

There will be the opportunity to undertake a work placement and being based in the heart of Leeds, the northern powerhouse of the region?s businesses and economy, you will have access to a number of employers and enterprise expertise within the city.

You?ll also be able to enjoy guest lectures by industry visitors. Previous speakers have included John Timpson CBE, owner of Timpson?s Shoe Repairs, and human rights fighter Shami Chakrabarti.
