Today’s managers are required to possess a diverse set of key skills and core competencies that are essential to successfully plan, execute and evaluate a wide range of business activities. The ESE Specialised Programme in Management equips participants with the right combination of practical knowledge supported by theoretical foundations to hone their leader's skills. The course offers a valuable insight into the field of Management that gives participants an advantage over the rest of the increasingly professionally prepared workforce in the market.
The ESE Specialised Programme in Management is designed to develop and contextualise managerial skills and acumen to ensure that managers dealing with international markets have the required understanding and insight for success in this field. This will be achieved through critical thinking, teamwork, creativity, and personal development in a highly interactive and stimulating environment.
Participants will be able to take responsibility to manage, supervise and direct their own, and others, activities, whilst understanding key strategic issues and trends in management.
