This qualitative study was carried out to study the effectiveness of the Leadership and Management course which contributed to the development of skills among a group of students in IIUM. It was aimed to examine significant learning methods, the knowledge, skills and aptitude (KSA) that students acquired from the learning experiences, and the effectiveness of the course. The study was conducted using semi-structured interviews. Data were immediately transcribed after each interview and analysed by comparing each interview data to find common themes that emerged. Data collected were analysed manually using Excel. Results showed that the most significant learning method which students learned to develop their leadership and management skills was through their group projects. The most cited KSA which they acquired from the course included communication skills, teamwork and thinking skills. The students agreed that the course was very effective in developing their characters and self-confidence, among other impacts. Future studies should be conducted amongst all students undertaking this course to determine the effectiveness of the course as a whole.
