Who is this program for?
You may have recently entered a management position from a specialized functional or technical role. You’re looking to push yourself out of your comfort zone in order to jump start your growth as a people leader, strategist, and business contributor.
Course level: Foundation
What will I learn?
The Management Development Program will introduce you to a broad set of management knowledge and help you accelerate your growth as a new manager. As with our other general management programs, you’ll study topics across leadership, strategy, and finance:
Leadership: Learn how to adapt your own leadership approach to motivate your team and deliver excellence.
Strategy: Understand strategy and how creative solutions are formed, and develop a strong personal and team management process to ensure seamless execution.
Business foundations: Learn key financial principles and build confidence in contributing to business-shaping discussions.
You’ll explore these topics with professors who have impressive professional experience themselves. More than just academics, they’re practitioners with real-world experience who have been consultants, directors, and vice presidents at leading global companies.
Why learn with us?
On this program, you will learn to expand your business acumen, lead a high- performance team, and influence at all levels within your organization.
Impactful executive education must start with your individual leadership style. That’s why before you arrive, you’ll complete a self-assessment to identify your strengths and areas for development. We’ll help you to understand your personal leadership style and maximize your ability to motivate others.
Our core research indicates that people learn best when in stressful yet supported, safe environments. Therefore, activities will place you in immersive yet supported simulations so that your learning sticks.
Throughout the program, we’ll partner with you to identify and solve a problem facing your organization. We’ll help you apply theoretical frameworks to this problem, and a coach will also help you to create an action plan to implement at work. You’ll complete a final project on this topic post-program, and earn a Certicate of Application as a result.
Our immersive setting away from the typical office will also ensure you have the mind space to focus and reflect, so you’ll return to work energized and ready to apply your learning.
Once the program is over, you’ll be invited to a group webinar with a tutor to assess your progress, and also have six months of access to our virtual learning portal.
“We were paired with a faculty member at the start, and you could meet for lunch or drop them an email.The faculty would go out of their way to find me the relevant information to answer my questions.”
