Here at the Centre for Leadership Studies we look at leadership, where it occurs and where it is missing, where it comes from and where it is going. We study leaders, and we also study the claims made about them – we get leadership into perspective. This has been our mission since 1997, and as an integral part of the University of Exeter we continue to be at the leading edge of contemporary research and teaching.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
