The Masters award can be gained in two years, and this is the most common route. It is also possible to take it in separate stages across three or four years. The first stage is the Postgraduate Certificate in Strategy, Change and Leadership. This comprises four three-day workshops across a six month period. Following this, participants can study for the Postgraduate Diploma in four three-day workshops running from July to March of the following year. For the final award of Masters in Strategy, Change and Leadership, participants complete an applied work-based project of about 15,000 words. Students are supported with one-to-one supervision.
