Looking for the next step in your professional career? Wondering if you can enhance your professional practice by accessing the latest research? BTI’s Master of Professional Practice and Leadership postgraduate degree offers all of this and more.
At BTI we recognise that we are created to engage with the spiritual dimension as well as with the social and physical aspects of people’s lives in the places where we live and work. It is this unique approach to the Master’s degree, together with an integration of theoretical, personal, and professional learning spaces, that will give you the edge over other professionals.
We have students on this programme from all professional backgrounds who are seeking to transition to a deeper level of understanding of the intersection between their personal gifts and calling and their professional context.
Completing a reputable postgraduate programme such as the MPPL can help to advance your career, moving you up the career ladder, or into a connected field.
A key component of our professional master’s degree programme is to heighten awareness of your own gifts, talents, strengths, weaknesses and ways of thinking that influence your ‘ways of being’. By engaging in this way, students enter into a practical synthesis between existing literature, personal experience, the Biblical narrative and your own professional context, allowing each to inform the other. These cycles of critical reflection provide opportunities for questioning societal, cultural, and institutional norms and potentially challenging some of the prevailing assumptions and values that inform them.

The Professional Practice and Leadership programme creates a safe, but challenging space focused on ‘being and becoming’ confident Christ-following professionals whose practice is research-informed.
The learning experiences within the programme equip and enable participants to engage with research and reflective inquiry into their professional practice in order to improve understanding of that practice and increase its intentionality and strategic alignment with the biblical narrative and the idea of the Kingdom of God on earth.
