Postgraduate study at the ALC

Our master's courses are concerned with the leadership dimensions of security and development across Global South contexts. We bring together students from around the world to be a part of our vibrant, inclusive and diverse learning and research environment.

Our students benefit from an innovative approach to the interdisciplinary study of leadership, development and peace and security. This equips them to understand the unique, intense and far-reaching complexities that defy standard narratives around: what leadership is; how assertions of influence occur and why certain (effective and ineffective) leaders emerge; and the relationship between institutions and leadership. Students have the opportunity to transform their perspectives on global leadership and undergo personal development to translate their ideas into change-making opportunities within their own contexts.
