This flagship programme is new for September 2014. It is designed for working executives to build capability for incisive analysis, innovation and strategic leadership, to support progression into senior leadership roles. The programme is delivered in a unique blended format, with classes once a month, supported by online learning.

Successful businesses in the future will be those which can confidently and capably steer a path through a world characterised by intense competition, rapid technological development, economic turbulence and increasing resource insecurity. Businesses need leaders who can think and act strategically in this volatile environment, managing the risk and challenges involved, but also spotting and seizing opportunities for efficiency, innovation and new business models. Businesses also need leaders who will act responsibly in delivering value to all stakeholders. We will prepare you to progress with confidence into leadership roles in this new world.

We will deepen your understanding of how businesses and markets work, how value is created through innovation and marketing, how strategies are crafted, how businesses are financed, how performance is measured, how value is delivered efficiently and effectively, and how organisations should be governed, managed and led through change. We will also explore the challenges of internationalisation and doing business with emerging economies.

We will instil a passion for business improvement, innovation and entrepreneurial action to help you lead in the growth or creation of new business opportunities. We will develop your ability to think strategically and beyond disciplinary silos.

Successful leadership also requires accomplished interpersonal skills to bring about change in organisations. Through coaching and skills training, we will work with you to understand your leadership strengths and weaknesses and provide support for improvement.
