It’s time for a different kind of Christian leader.
In this rapidly changing world, you need to possess deep spiritual conviction and a passion for mission, but with great skills in organisational management. The Master of Leadership focuses on building leadership capacity for people involved in a wide range of religious, not-for-profit and social enterprises. Students may be working for organisations in education, welfare, aged care, disability services, local church or other ministries that require specific leadership training for ministry or mission.
The increasingly sophisticated religious not-for-profit sector now demands that its leaders have both great spiritual leadership depth and professional management skills tailored to the unique needs of a mission-based organisation. Built on a strong biblical and theological framework, the Master of Leadership is designed to help students become effective leaders for a rapidly changing world. Regardless of their context, effective leaders will be agents of change who can help ignite and manage the transformation of their organisation and our society.
