I don’t think there is one! Usu­ally, they’ve had some work ex­pe­ri­ence in mid­dle man­age­ment or se­nior roles. Of­ten they’re at a ca­reer pivot point. Per­haps they’ve been out of the work­force for a while and want to re-en­ter on their own terms, cre­ate their own op­por­tu­nity. Some have had suc­cess in one field and want to ap­ply their skills to an­other area, pos­si­bly one that has more mean­ing for them. We get peo­ple who re­alise the fu­ture of work is go­ing to be very dif­fer­ent from the tra­di­tional study-work-re­tire path and want to ex­plore that. We get peo­ple who want to solve a prob­lem or man­age change in their em­ploy­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion - they bring that burn­ing chal­lenge to the Mas­ter’s. We’ve re­ally tried to struc­ture the pro­gramme so you can con­tinue with an ex­ist­ing role or busi­ness as well.
