Overview

This interactive, high-level programme is for participants developing their careers in senior management. The programme is designed to develop participants based on their own leadership and career goals. It will build on existing leader development activities such as identifying competency gaps and individualised development plans. It will also supply the tools, strategies, and networks to support and challenge participants as they develop their careers in senior and executive management.

Programme

The programme runs over the course of 5 months with sessions twice a month. The separate sessions use facilitated learning with a combination of professional and academic leaders, and are designed to encourage active learning where participants learn from one another as well as from these experts.

Each module is designed around a theme particularly relevant to individuals in senior management and board positions, and offers tools or frameworks that can be put into practice immediately.

Each session will be led by specialists in the subject matter from the University of Edinburgh Business School and will also involve business leaders from a variety of backgrounds, depending on each session’s topic, with relevant skills and experience pertaining to each.

The level of teaching is Executive MBA and above and each session is video recorded for the exclusive use of delegates for continued learning and in case a session is missed. The style of learning and delivery will be practical workshops, case studies, and group work to enable practical learning at all times.

The sessions will be taking place in person on the following dates:

  • Tuesday 27 August 2024, 17:00-20:30
