This unit requires students to provide leadership on a significant strategic issue facing their organisation. Students will be asked to develop a project that can be presented to their organisation's Board or senior management that will have a significant impact on the organisation, and will also allow the student to demonstrate their leadership in respect to this issue. Students will be required to apply the cross-disciplinary knowledge, leadership skills and personal attributes developed during the degree to this strategic issue. Thus, as in other parts of the course, the approach to the project must be integrative, applying the theoretical knowledge gained in a practical and relevant manner, and take into account the broader context in which the organisation operates. This is the final component of the Executive MBA, and as such will allow students to draw on the content and experiences from throughout the course. Students will work closely with an in-company sponsor as well as an academic mentor to ensure the project is both of substantial and practical value to the organisation and completed with academic rigor. The completion of this Unit of Study is the final component of the Executive MBA.
