Leading in a Post-Crisis World

Reset your thinking to succeed in a post-crisis economy
Critical thinking, innovative problem-solving skills and understanding global and local challenges are more important than ever. Sharpen your abilities with the Leading in a Post-Crisis World program – an ambitious and inspiring experience exclusively for students studying at the Business School.

Leading in a Post-Crisis World (LPC) is a series of opportunities you can undertake across the course of your degree to empower you to solve future challenges in collaboration with your peers, world-class academics and industry leaders.

You'll receive formal recognition of your participation and stand out from your peers, armed with a unique set of skills and experiences to succeed in the post-crisis job market.

The program will equip you with:

  • the skills to turn disruption and crisis into career opportunities
  • experience in designing innovative solutions to the challenges faced by business, the economy, and society in a post-crisis world
  • local and global insights from leading academic and industry experts
  • valuable social and professional connections with fellow students, academics, alumni and industry partners

LPC is designed to complement and enhance your current studies, with three flexible in-curricular and extra-curricular components available. You can undertake any or all of the three components as you like across multiple semesters, and will receive recognition for each LPC level you complete. The program is offered in both remote and on-campus learning modes.
