Masters in Professional Studies (MProf) Program


LEAD and Forum for the Future, leading sustainability NGOs, have teamed up to deliver a new international Masters programme in Leadership for Sustainable Development. This programme is now accepting applicants.

In the UK , Forum for the Future has been running an innovative Masters programme in Leadership for Sustainable Development since 1996. Graduates of this course are now working as the new generation of government advisors, policy consultants and think tank directors.

These types of leaders are needed at the national level in all countries and the support of the Vodafone Group Foundation has made it possible to pilot this unique style of learning for sustainable development internationally. Middlesex University validates the programme as a Masters in Professional Studies (MProf.).

The pilot course will run for a year from October 2004 with twelve students in total from four global regions: Southern Africa , China , Japan , Europe and the CIS.

The first four months will be spent in the UK , then students will return home to study and gain work experience, finally coming to Geneva to share their learning with the group and put their experiences in the context of international policy.

Structured, intensive work-based learning placements in civil society organisations, businesses and governments are central to the course.  They are supported by teaching that brings together leadership and sustainable development to enable students to envision, then deliver a better future.
