The Master of Leadership program draws on Alphacrucis College's expertise in leadership and record of educating successful leaders. It provides a core of leadership knowledge and professional application, while allowing students to explore areas of specific interest in pastoral, educational and business leadership. The purpose of this Level 9 Masters coursework program is to provide an advanced body of knowledge and professional application for graduates in a variety of contexts in the key area of leadership.
The Master of Leadership will produce graduates with in-depth understanding of leadership, integrated with Christian worldview, vocation and community standards. Graduates will be equipped with advanced leadership theory and be able to apply this in practical settings, as well as developing skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and communication. It will also prepare students for further study through a structured program of independent research culminating in the integrative research project.

Message from the Program Director...
Welcome to the Master of Leadership program, which I have the privilege to lead.
Previous degrees at AC have combined biblical and theological studies with the opportunity to undertake leadership courses or do a leadership major. The MLead is a program specifically designed to focus on the needs and skills of leaders.
More information can be found via the Award Description link above. If you have any further questions about the course, please email AC future students enquiries.
