Do you want to change the world?

What do you want the future to look like? As a leader, you can make this vision come to life and tackle the challenges of today’s world. You’ll need to learn how to see business and society holistically – and we’ll help you do exactly that. 

Working towards a better future for people and the planet is key to The School of Business Management at Queen Mary. We believe in engaging with the community and supporting social mobility as we have done for many years. If you share our values, you’ll slot into our community seamlessly.      

We’ve designed this course to cover different aspects of social change management, from governance and regulatory environments to project management, fundraising and volunteer management. Of course, evaluating the effectiveness of strategies and looking at the social impact will be key too.  

Sharpen your professional skills 

Our modules are designed with your professional development in mind. You’ll learn from a teaching team with extensive experience in research and practice across various private, public and voluntary organisations. We’ll also introduce you to our industry contacts – hear from inspiring guest speakers including CEOs of multinational corporations and key community leaders. 

You’ll develop as an individual and learn what it means to think like a professional with opportunities to get practical experience. Our students have previously had placements at J P Morgan, Mazars, Mind, Samaritans and many more.
