The Cambridge Masters in Conservation Leadership is a ground-breaking course that
equips students with the applied leadership and management skills needed to create
positive change in conservation. A unique feature of the course is its delivery by a
collaboration between the University of Cambridge and nine leading conservation
organisations, which together comprise the Cambridge Conservation Initiative. The
Masters in Conservation Leadership is designed for applicants with at least three
years of relevant professional experience and clear leadership potential.
The curriculum combines taught modules with hands-on experiential learning
through a group consultancy and an individual professional placement hosted by a
conservation organisation. All students receive 1:1 mentoring from a senior leader.
The course is based in the David Attenborough Building, offering students
outstanding facilities and constant access to world-leading conservation
practitioners and researchers.
Graduates join a global alumni network from over 70 countries who receive ongoing
support. Alumni are already making a global impact for conservation.
