Programme Overview

This programme ensures that participants are equipped to adapt to the fast-paced technological and organisational challenges faced today, while constantly evolving and adapting themselves. We aim to prepare managers of the future offering practical and industry-ready skills that can be used to guide them in their business decisions through a better understanding of the complex socio-economic environmental and ethical challenges faced by a firm.


Participants are expected to undergo profound personal and professional change as they are exposed to an eclectic mix of learning techniques, thought provoking faculty, experiential activities, business simulations, skill development, peer to peer discussions and guest speaker insights. This will enable them to acquire the confidence, based on developing business acumen and gaining knowledge, to transition from being a functional leader to a business expert, leading their teams through transformation.


Programme Objective
  • Set the strategic direction of their future in today’s knowledge economy
  • Challenge their pre-conceptions and explore new ideas to lead and deliver change
