Executive Master in Leadership, Strategy and Innovation (M1253)

Transforming Aspiring Managers Into Inspiring Leaders

Effective leadership is no longer simply about managing individual disciplines such as HR, marketing or finance. It’s about bringing them together. You must nurture integration, collaboration and change to improve individual team performance.

This led us to ask business, government and academia what kind of development the leaders of tomorrow actually want and need.

The answer is our Executive Masters in Leadership, Strategy and Innovation (EMSLI).

 The EMLSI Learning Modules:

An activity based online approach of nine modules:


MBS601 Leadership Dynamics - From Follower to Leader

MBS602 Developing High Performance Work Systems

MBS604 Manager as Performance Coach


MBS607 Leading from Strategy to Operations

MBS608 Managing Uncertainty Through Scenario Planning

MBS609 REghinking Strategic Value of Markets and Consumers


MBS613 Managing a Global Business

MBS628 Creating Value for Organisations

MBS637 Stakeholder Governance in a Business Society Ecosystem

Each module is made up of:

  • Module readings and their associated discussion points are located on an easy access innovative platform
  • Case study discussions and debates -
  • Groupwork  (online and offline)
  • Live knowledge transfer sessions facilitated by Murdoch University Faculty and Industry Specialists (compulsory), twice per week
  • Three Assessments per module
  • Video journals and podcasts

Each of the EMLSI Modules are four weeks in duration plus assessment. See the timeline on page 12 of the 2019 Executive Master Brochure. (click on the link above)
