The modules (People, Processes and Perspectives) can be completed in the order you wish at each stage meaning you can prioritise learning based on your needs.


The different organisation-based assignments and the Masters-level project ensure you apply new thinking to real pressures or opportunities (often predetermined by your sponsoring organisation) and enable you to offer valuable, practical advice across your organisation. This is executive education with an enabling, practical focus, designed with organisational success in mind.
