Course description

Strategic Leadership in Action Executive Education at City University London - CASS Business School

Strategic Leadership in Action - Executive Education at City University London - Cass Business School

Leading an organisation in today's challenging operating environment is enormously challenging and requires senior leaders and directors to possess both first-class skills and knowledge, as well as the personal qualities they need to become top executives.

This comprehensive programme provides a unique combination of business know-how and leadership development with academic study and learning driven by practical experience.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This executive education programme is aimed at senior management professionals who hold a university degree and  have 10 + years' experience with at least 2 years in a senior management position with responsibility for people and results. Delegates will have been identified in their organisation as having the potential to be promoted to a senior level. All candidates are required to attend an interview and provide two references.

The programme is designed for high-calibre senior executives who are a few levels away from CEO. These are individuals who are responsible for the future direction and transformation of their organisations and for inspiring their workforce. Delegates are typically managing directors, regional directors and country managers with P&L responsibility. Delegates come from small medium or large organisations in public, private or not for profit sectors. Entrepreneurs of medium to large sized organisations are also welcomed.

Training Course Content

This three week leadership programme is delivered in two blocks of 10 and 5 days respectively. It allows delegates to explore and practice the very essence of leadership.

The programme addresses four key areas:

  • The challenge of senior leadership
  • Leading people
  • Sustaining
  • Growing the business and leading strategic change.

Module 1 (10 days): Executive Leadership Development series of experiential and classroom sessions covering:

  • Leadership Theory and Practice
  • Motivating and Teambuilding Problem Solving and Decision Making
  • Communicating and Influencing
  • Leading and Managing Change.

Module 2 (5 days): Executive Business Education series of business based simulations and classroom sessions providing participants with the opportunity to apply the lessons of Module 1, covering:

  • Business Economics and Information Management

  • Stakeholder Management and Negotiation.

Delegates will receive personal mentoring to support both developmental ambitions and business practices. They will be instructed on coaching tools and techniques through peer to peer coaching that can be applied back in the workplace.

Each delegate's behaviour and actions during the course will be assessed by the course tutors using the leadership competency framework developed by Cass and IDG. They will receive regular and formal peer feedback, in order to support and encourage development.


The cost of this training course is £15,995 (no VAT will be charged), which includes all meals and refreshments and course materials. Delegates will need to organise their own accommodation. There are preferential rates available at nearby hotels.
