The bridge to board level performance

This masters-level postgraduate diploma develops you as a leader who can navigate the complexities of 21st century business. The Diploma in Organisational Leadership is designed for high achievers in significant management roles to question assumptions about management practice and build a deeper understanding of how to manage people and organisations for competitive advantage. 

Taught in four modules of four days each and completed in 12 months the Diploma in Organisational Leadership combines the academic rigour expected of a University of Oxford postgraduate-level qualification with a practical approach to the study of strategic management, organisational development and design, and leadership. 

The Diploma in Organisational Leadership offers:

  • A postgraduate-level qualification from the University of Oxford which builds on your existing professional development and experience

  • A deeper understanding of how to manage people and organisations, and of your own approach to the complexities of strategic management

  • Focus on the reality of leadership in hard times such as delivering the hard messages while maintaining motivation, and focusing on essentials
    while watching out for other factors that could affect performance

  • Access to top-level teaching from world-leading experts, drawing on Oxford University’s  strengths in leadership and organisational behaviour

  • Lifelong association with the university through the business school, university networks and college membership - and a pathway to the Oxford Executive MBA

'The Diploma in Organisational Leadership is designed for strategic leaders who want to develop their organisations in a global, changing environment and understand culture, complexity and strategic decision making. Since its launch we have awarded postgraduate qualifications to talented managers and leaders from every type of organisation and sector who have learned with and through each other about what makes effective leaders who can shape successful organisations.'
