Program Description

Master of Arts in Leadership

Royal Roads University

Overview

The MA in Leadership 36 credit, program consists of two years of interdisciplinary study. In each year, students focus on relevant, real-world problem-solving projects grounded in a rigorous theoretical understanding of the nature of today’s organizations and the changing role of leadership within them. Comprehensive leadership studies address adult learning, emotional intelligence, communication and conflict, systems thinking, team facilitation and development, organizational change, and action research inquiry.

Blended Delivery Model

The MA in Leadership program is specifically designed to attract working professionals. It is structured on the basis of two intensive two-week long on-campus residency periods, followed by distance learning. This allows participants to substantially enhance their educational credentials while minimizing absences from their workplace.

The MA in Leadership is further distinguished by balancing professional diversity and interdisciplinary study, with the need for sector-specific knowledge and problem-solving skills. This is accomplished by having a common curriculum for all students in the first year and an independent, work-based problem-solving project in the second year.

Who It’s For

The MA in Leadership is an applied, competency-based program offering advanced leadership skills for experienced leaders interested in developing more effective organizations and communities. Focusing on factors that contribute to successful problem solving and innovation, this program provides key skills and insights to professionals working in corporate, academic, public sector, and not-for-profit environments.

Applicants who do not have the formal academic education to qualify for admission may be assessed on the basis of both their formal education and their informal learning, in accordance with the Flexible Admission Policy.
