Oxford Perspectives: Media Leadership Programmes


The Reuters Institute offers a range of professional leadership programmes as part of the Oxford Perspectives series. These are designed to give senior managers, journalists and editors insights into the latest research, new thinking, trends and best practice in organisational transformation. The programmes are delivered in small groups with fellow media practitioners and offer plenty of networking opportunities.
