Master of Leadership and Change Management

Course Overview

The development and implementation of the Master of Leadership and Change Management is a critical element to the realisation of the University’s vision and Namibia’s Vision 2030. The Namibia University of Science and Technology launched the first version of the programme in 2012. Therefore using that foundation as an invaluable learning platform provides an opportunity for the further review and development of the Master of Leadership and Change Management programme.

The programme has been specifically designed to prepare participants to meet the challenges of the ever changing organisational context globally whilst incorporating Namibian specific needs and issues. Graduates of the Master of Leadership and Change Management programme will not only be able to have career progression, but also contribute to organisational growth and effectiveness. The programme is fully aligned with requirements of the NUST Curriculum Framework, the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), and European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).
