About Public Leadership at Cardiff University

The MSc in Public Leadership will be a unique, challenge-based learning programme that reflects our commitment to our Public Value strategy. We are uniquely placed to offer this programme with close links between research and practice, and our challenge-centred approach.

The programme is targeted at employees across a wide range of public services with five to ten years’ experience and aspirations to progress to senior roles, and who are motivated to make a difference in response to the complex and interdependent issues arising in the current and future service environment.

Designed around a series of modules that will be facilitated by academic and practitioner teams, the focus will be on evaluating evidence from research and practice in live settings, case studies and consultancy problems arising from your own organisation. You will also benefit from masterclasses with high profile leaders.

Using a range of policy and delivery challenges that cut across disciplinary, geographic, organisational and sectoral boundaries, we will support you to reflect critically on how insights into theory and practice can generate and sustain individual development, organisational improvement and enhanced citizen outcomes. Your individual leadership capacity will be supported through sponsorship, developmental workshops and peer and individual coaching. 

This programme champions the creation of public value and an ethical engagement with the multiple interests involved in public, private and third sector collaborations. The overall ethos of this programme will focus on developing both you and your organisations simultaneously.
