MSc in Applied Management and Leadership


Technological University Dublin
MSc in Applied Management and Leadership Level 9 on the QQI National Framework of Qualifications
This exciting new MSc programme is focused on developing the critical areas of management, HRM and leadership, with a particular focus on applying best practice in these areas, in the real world

Managing and leading others are vital competencies for successful managers to develop and apply in their organisations and careers. Regardless of the level you are at within your organisation, we believe all those with responsibility for other people, need to build their own strengths, style and approach as they manage processes and lead people to achieve their best performance. The programme delivery is based on a practical, innovative, action learning approach which is designed to make a real impact on the confidence, knowledge and learning of all participants.

The practical focus which underlies the overall programme design concentrates on the personal and professional development of participants by honing their analytical, conceptual and interpersonal skills and building a detailed understanding of the tools and frameworks to support advanced management leadership capability.

Participants will learn how to:
  • Lead others through change, while understanding the psychology of different approaches within the team, ensuring they work to their own strengths
  • Apply the latest thinking and research on effective planning and putting systems and processes in place that work
  • Create a strategic HRM plan for their area of responsibility which builds on the core principles, models and best practice in employee relations and industrial relations law and practice

This programme is for:
Participants interested in pursuing a career in senior management, become an expert in contemporary best practices and deepen their understanding of managing and leading others to achieve high performance, while bringing about real change in their organisations. The programme is aimed at managers from all business sectors who are experienced in leadership roles or planning to move into such positions and who recognise the value of leading and managing others and who want to build their competence, knowledge and strengths in these critical areas.
