MDP in Leadership for Change

Dealing with Change in Complex Societies

Leadership for Change programme is a unique combination of Administrative Sciences, Business Studies and Politics. The programme enables developing the kind of knowledge and expertise that is needed to explain and understand complex phenomena, become a visionary leader, and to change the world.

The three specialisations of the programme give students an excellent opportunity to focus on their area of interest while gaining a broader understanding of the central topics of the programme. Students from all specialisations take part in joint courses focusing on cross-disciplinary perspectives on leadership in complex societal processes.

The School of Management at University of Tampere seeks novel ways to lead, govern and study across boundaries. The combination of the three adjacent fields is internationally rare and one of its kind in Finland.
