Description

Advertisement

This programme creates genuinely transformation learning. It challenges and supports you to develop the way you respond to key issues and understanding of business responsibilities. It enables you to take effective action in the sustainability and responsibility areas.

With a combination of change, leadership and sustainability, you will embark upon a unique journey of discovery.

The MSc in Sustainability and Responsibility Journey
The programme is studied part time over two years and is based around a series of eight intensive workshops, each of five days' duration.
The programme requires you to engage in practical and experimental actions between workshops, using action research processes. You will be fully supported by tutors and peer learning groups to apply your learning from workshops to your daily professional settings.

Through the programme you will :

* explore sustainability and corporate responsibility from multiple perspectives

* engage with leading-edge practitioners and organisations featuring values-based business and organisational practices

* develop skills and apply disciplined action research and action learning

* develop and apply your capacities as an informed and self-aware individual contributing to organisational and social change

* inform the growing world-wide debate on the purposes and responsibilities of business

* benefit from strong peer support, shared learning and a conducive learning environment

Action Research
Action Research incorporates a wide range of practices and ideas with a strong pedigree in the fields of organisational change and community development. Action Research invites you to develop a discipline of thinking, personal reflection and testing ideas through action experiments.

Simply put, it asks you to become an active researcher into your own life, work and organisation. You will be encouraged to experience with your activites and approaches at work, in response to the topics raised on the programme.

Each workshop includes some time in small peer learning groups and in the whole group, helping you become clearer about the questions that lie at the heart of the work you wish to do in the world.

Our experience is that this combination of approach, sustainability and responsibility topics and the theories of learning, change and leadership is what makes this such a powerful and practical learning opportunity.

Requirements

The MSc is a demanding modular programme aimed at participants with significant work experience rather than at recent graduates.

Participants will usually hold a first degree or equivalent, though applicants with significant professional experience and no undergraduate degree will also be considered.

The programme is anchored in practice and you will be expected to reflect on and explore your own organisational, community or professional activities between workshops. You will therefore need to demonstrate that you can provide settings in which such exploration can take place.

Appropriate TOEFL/IELTS scores may be required for those whose first language is not English.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 7
TOEFL iBT® test: 100

Funding

Bursaries
We welcome a diversity of participants on this programme particularly in terms of nationality, country of residence, sector, role, background and size of organisation.

We are able to offer a limited number of partial bursaries, ranging between 10% and 50% of programme fees, to applicants who are unable to meet the full costs independently and whose participation will increase the overall diversity of the group.

Anyone wishing to apply for a bursary should first apply for the programme and come for an open day and interview. Once accepted on the course you can then ask to complete a bursary application.

Bursaries are awarded at the discretion of the programme directors to support maximum diversity for each particular intake group.
