Enrol in the MicroMasters Program

Business leadership is more than just a fancy job title and a corner office. Effective leadership requires a deep understanding of the organisation; the people who run it; the context in which it operates; and perhaps most importantly, self-insight. By building these competencies, the Business Leadership MicroMasters program prepares both emerging and experienced managers for facing the challenges of leadership. 

Each course in the MicroMasters program integrates current academic theories with the wisdom of experienced leaders, providing a learning experience that can't be accomplished in the classroom alone. The objective: empower learners with the knowledge and skill to act effectively as leaders. 

The MicroMasters is intended for people who are interested in becoming effective leaders within their organisation. This program and capstone project will teach you the skills needed to inspire your colleagues and to evolve your business.
