Leadership in Action

Leadership in Action units aim to help you understand what it means to be a leader in the C21st. The units explore complex current problems and ask how does change happen? Who makes it happen? What does that tell us about leadership and how we do it?


Manchester Leadership Programme

The Manchester Leadership Programme (MLP) is unique to the University of Manchester and provides students with the opportunity to enhance their university experience, while giving something back to the wider community.

MLP students learn about the challenges facing society in the 21st century, and the leadership approaches needed to address them, both in theory and in real-world practice. The programme also helps students to develop the skills and experiences that graduate employers seek.
