DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE LEADERS
The demand for strong leadership in transformational change is being stimulated by the impact of challenging public service reform agendas and digital transformation on almost every activity. The highly successful Master of Science in Leadership and Innovation in the Public Service develops the leadership talent of public sector managers in order to deliver significant organisational improvement in participating organisations. It draws on the real-life experience of its participants and is the only North-South programme of its kind. 

This programme was originally developed by Letterkenny Institute of Technology and Ulster University in collaboration with the Office of An Taoiseach and the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister who were integral to deciding on the content, structure and philosophy of the programme.

DEEPER ACTION LEARNING
An integral part of the programme is action learning within the candidate’s own workplace. This approach enhances the use of specialist knowledge in practice and recognises the reciprocal relationship between management theory and professional practice. The programme creates an environment in which participants can engage in knowledge development based on their work context. Relevant project work in participating organisations and sharing of real life experiences form a richness of learning through the process referred to as ‘Build and Learn’. It is essentially a practical programme with rigorous theoretical underpinnings. 

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE
The programme runs over 2 years and is designed to facilitate executives in the workplace. It comprises 6 taught modules (each module is block delivered over 2 days with additional delivery online) and a Research Project.

This MSc has 6 knowledge disciplines central to underpinning the programme vision of developing innovating leaders. The programme includes the following modules:
  • Context of Leadership, Innovation and Transformation 
  • Transformational Leadership 
  • Citizen Centric Policy Design 
  • Change and Cultural Management 
  • Digital Transformation and Shared Services 
  • Performance Management
