Grant Thornton UK has formed a partnership with Cranfield School of Management in order to launch a Masters (MSc) in management and leadership.

The MSc had been developed by Cranfield professors and meets the requirements of the level 7 senior leaders master’s degree apprenticeship standard. It runs over two years.

Cranfield School of Management MSc Management and Leadership’s course director Michael Dickmann said: “This unique partnership combines the best of academic knowledge and commercial insights. The course will develop leadership and management capabilities with specific focus on cutting-edge insights, commercial application and effective management frameworks.

“The practical nature of the course enables learners to gain a ‘real-world’ business education, which they can apply directly back to their workplace.”

The MSc is designed for any employer that wants to accelerate the strategic leadership capability of early-career professionals. The tuition and assessment fees of the course amount to £18,000 which can also be fully funded from the Apprenticeship Levy for employees that are eligible.

Grant Thornton also provides other programmes as well as the MSc with Cranfield. This includes, leadership in a digital world with Cass Business School, the Cranfield executive MBA, the management programme with Activate Business School, and the team leader programme with Activate Business School.

The course will be delivered on a part time basis and covers the core management subjects in a series of 13 modules, providing a solid foundation across all business fundamentals. There will also be sessions held with Grant Thornton’s coaches.

Grant Thornton’s Talent Solutions partner Justin Rix commented: “We have listened to the market and, based on our insights in to what makes truly great leaders, have developed a curriculum that responds to the needs of modern, dynamic organisations.  

“The course is challenging and will stretch even the brightest minds, encouraging future managers and leaders to explore new areas and push themselves beyond their comfort zones.  This course, which can be fully funded using Apprenticeship Levy payments, is an opportunity for employers to accelerate the development of leaders and managers, improve retention and empower individuals to work on meaningful strategic initiatives with the support of a world-class business school partner.”
