What is Certificate in Management Development?
The primary aim of the Certificate in Management Development is within a short and intense period - to produce high calibre individuals, distinct in their abilities, understanding, skills and knowledge associated with the management of business. More specifically the objectives of the programme are to provide participants with:
•An in-depth knowledge of the management process and of the key issues affecting decision making in organisations;
•An awareness of the requirements needed to compete in an international business environment;
•An exposure to the core aspects of organisational leadership criteria;
•The capability to manage change and complexity in business operations;
•An insight that will allow them to source, identify and assess elements of world class performance in their operational context;
•The potential to continue a course of professional development at a higher level.
In consultation with organisations, the course is a one semester programme, flexibly-delivered utilising a block-release mode (2 days per month) and blended approach for the delivery of four modules over a Semester. This delivery mode was specifically designed to facilitate flexibility for the learner. The programme is ideal for anyone without a business qualification and incorporates modules like Strategy & Leadership, Managing People, and a Applied Project in Management Development. This programme provides a bedrock for anyone hoping to pursue careers in management or leadership in a wide variety of contexts.
