Master's Overview

The leadership degree for the service and experience economy

Challenge yourself and become an exemplary leader, ready for whatever the future brings in an increasingly diversified and rapidly-changing business environment. The world’s economies are changing – from product and commodity-based to experience and serviced-based. These changes require adjustments to the way we lead and manage every aspect of business.

UQ's fully online Master of Leadership and Innovation addresses the critical issues facing managers, such as digital disruption, automation, AI, socio-demographic changes, and geopolitical shifts. The program combines several important challenges, including foundational principles that are critical to understand in the experience-based economy and the importance of embedding a culture of customer experience. It also explores value co-creation in a service and experience context, embedding continuous innovation, enabling the execution of new ideas to create value for all stakeholders and the growing field of digital service deliver platforms.

As you personally engage in applying theory to practice, you'll benefit from UQ's blending of contemporary research and best practices in effective business leadership. You’ll experience the principles of innovation, service science and management, along with customer experience foundations and design through courses delivered by some of the most future-focused educators in Australia.
