Stand out from the Business School crowd with our Postgraduate Future Leaders Certificate

Our Future Leaders Certificate is an extra-curricular programme specifically designed to help you make the most of your time here by developing relevant knowledge and putting into practice the vital skills you need to succeed in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the impact this is having on the world of work.

If you are selected, you will be put through a rigorous programme between December and June which combines online training, interactive workshops and both individual and team assessments, all culminating in an exciting and intensive summer programme where you will work on a real, live project set by a multinational company.
