Pearson Business School launches new Senior Leaders Masters Degree Apprenticeship

Pearson Business School draws on its extensive experience of working with employers for leadership and management for undergraduate degree apprenticeships to launch a new, Senior Leaders Masters Degree Apprenticeship.

Over the course of the 18 to 24 months the apprentices will complete an industry specialised MA Business and Management, awarded by Pearson Business School and the University of Kent; be eligible for Chartered Fellow or Chartered Manager member status with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), and membership or fellowship of the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) (depending on years of management experience); and prepare for senior level management roles in their respective business. This highly flexible programme will enable learners to develop their skill set and knowledge to a level that is required for senior leadership and management roles.

All of the programmes at Pearson Business School are designed with an employer focus and during the course the apprentices will take part in mentored work-based projects for each module which will be in-line with their classroom learning. These mentored workplace projects are designed to add value to both the individual and their organisations through a combination of self-development, mentorship and tuition. The five modules they will cover are: Adding Organisation Value, Purposeful Leadership and Management, Contemporary Strategy, Finance, Technology and Risk Management and Change Management and Digital Transformation.  

The first cohort of the new Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship (SLMDA) at Pearson Business School began their course this week, so keep an eye out for testimonials about how they are getting on.

About Pearson Business School
Education, powered by industry experience.

We're transforming higher education. As a FTSE 100 company, immersed in industry, we do things differently. Industry engagement is at the core of everything that we do, and it’s what sets us apart.

We offer all full-time degree students guaranteed internships*, so they gain experience during their studies. Our degree apprentices also get to work within a company throughout their studies, so they gain valuable experience, learning on the job. We help our students to build their own professional networks; they’re taught by well-connected industry experts, and they get to make contacts at industry workshops led by some of the world’s most reputable organisations.  We work with industry giants from Unilever, L’Oreal, and Sony Pictures, to WPP, Lloyds of London and IBM. Alongside their academic studies, it's experiences like these that help our students to develop the knowledge and skills they’ll need to succeed, as well as inspire them, so they have the drive and ambition to get ahead.

Our students are enterprising and entrepreneurial. They get to work with our in-house business incubator FindOutFresher, and many have set up their own companies too, like Kickpush and Yaantu and even social enterprises like Once Upon a Doug.

Our alumni have gone on to work for brands such as Nestle, Sainsbury’s, Microsoft, Dyson, Not on the High Street, the BBC, Snapchat, Wincanton and General Mills.

Industry engagement drives us; it’s not just what we do, it’s who we are. And it is what will take us, and our students, into the future.
