The Programme

Students in this course will be able to apply skills related to leadership, social innovation, and entrepreneurship to make an impact on a social issue or problem of their choice. Certain skills are required to become an effective public leader, and this course aims to provide you with the confidence to learn all about the dynamics of leadership management and innovation. Communities are still confined with issues like high unemployment rate, poor and inadequate education, lack of infrastructure, insufficient social amenities, poor healthcare, increasing inequality, and plenty of other issues. These challenges offer the opportunity to look at old problems in new ways, an opportunity for social innovation fueled by its large and growing youth population; thus, it is important to manage public leadership with social innovation. In every case study, class, event, and activity, students will be tasked with not only studying leadership, but to demonstrate it.


This course is designed to introduce the concept, as well as engage students and the tutor, in a joint learning experience of this emerging field.
