Why Study Leadership and Management?

Leaders and managers bring very different skills, knowledge and competencies to the businesses they work for.  Though the two concepts share many similarities, management and leadership are fundamentally different. Management enables a business to achieve its objectives through a combination of deployment, delegation, instruction and supervision.  By contrast, leadership is more about inspiring others to perform at their best by setting a positive example. Hence, the most effective (and often successful) individuals are those who excel in both fields.  This advanced course has been designed to prep aspiring leaders for the dynamic and demanding world of high-profile business management.
