Learning Process

Varied combinations of learning activities are employed on the Programme. These are designed to stimulate learning in participants as well as investigate new approaches to management by providing new skills as well as a platform for practical application.

Skills are built up through targeted lectures, readings, presentations and case studies, discussed in study groups with the aim of introducing new ideas and theories that challenge participant's existing perspectives. This approach also permits participants to benefit from the latent knowledge of experienced faculty.

Learning also includes action-based approaches that make participants think through how theories presented work out in practice


Delivery in two modules of four days each over two months.
