Executive Masters

At Edinburgh Napier, we offer a range of Executive Master’s courses for organisations looking to upskill their staff and professionals looking to develop new skills and advance their career.

Enhance your skills

The majority of learning and study takes place at work or draws on workplace experience. An Executive Master’s degree lets you gain your postgraduate qualification while applying new skills to your job throughout. Whether you are looking to build new skills in a current role or prepare for your next move, within 18 months you can achieve a respected industry-relevant Master’s degree.

Research shows the application and personal reflection of taught concepts to the work situation that delivers most effective learning and development. For these courses, you need to be employed in a role with opportunities to apply these new skills.

A step up for your future

Stephen Donachie is Head of Enterprise Information Security at Aegon and studied MSc Strategic ICT Leadership at Edinburgh Napier. We caught up with him to discuss his experience of the Executive Masters programme.

Develop your staff

Our Executive Master’s degrees are designed to support employers to develop talent in their organisation. Companies build capability and capacity by giving their people the opportunity to develop themselves through a programme designed to deliver impact on the business.

These courses feature two major components co-designed with the employer: a work-based project delivering immediate impact and a dissertation to advance knowledge in your organisation. Our courses provide a strategic opportunity for companies to develop their people and their organisation, by harnessing the ambition and developing the vision of their staff.
