You’ll look at leadership, people skills and how to deal with a variety of challenging management situations. [+]

Best Summer Courses in Management 2017. Overview In almost every career path, if you want to advance, you’ll have to be able to manage people – and that’s particularly true in the world of business. In this course, you have to chance to look at what separates good managers from bad managers and how you can acquire management skills that will serve you well in your future career. You’ll look at leadership, people skills and how to deal with a variety of challenging management situations. Academic Content This highly practical course looks at how you can match the skills you have already to being a good manager. Over two weeks of study, you’ll look at everything is required of a manager, such as inspiring a team, providing useful feedback, making a pitch, budgeting, strategy and planning and how to work with difficult colleagues – and you’ll work towards learning the necessary skills to pull this off and inspire a team. You’ll look at different management styles, and work out which one is right for you and the situations you might encounter, given your own personality and abilities. Because this course is targeted at students aged 19 to 25, you’ll also look at management challenges that affect specifically that age group, such as how to handle not being taken seriously because of your age, and how to manage people who may be considerably older and more experienced than you are. Case studies of different businesses – some successful and some not – will help you understand what has led managers to succeed or to fail. Businesses led by young entrepreneurs are a particular focus of the case studies chosen. In addition, you’ll learn transferable skills that will be useful in a wide range of contexts, such as managing delegation, public speaking and presentation skills. Working with students from all over the world will also give you an insight into how best-practice management styles differ across different cultures, and there will be extensive discussion of how to manage possible clashes of culture in an ever-more globalised world. There will also be time for students with management experience, whether from the workplace, from school or university, or from extracurricular activities, to raise any problems that they have faced as young managers and for the group to discuss possible ways that such challenges could have been resolved. Why take this course? You might have an inspired idea for a new app, or a charitable cause that you’re passionate about, but making a success of endeavours like these will inevitably require business management skills. Likewise, any promotion you get in your future career is likely to require the management of other members of staff; and while some employers will offer training for this, many will simply expect you to work it out for yourself. Oxford Royale Academy’s Business Management course is targeted specifically at the business management needs of students aged 19 to 25. You might be taking a Gap Year, or be a current undergraduate, or recent graduate who has newly started in the world of work. Most degrees do not include business management skills, but might nonetheless lead to jobs that do – this intensive, fun, hands-on two-week course can help you level up in skills so that you’re ready to take on managerial responsibility, in whatever form that might be. After all, the skills that are vital in the boardroom are just as applicable to managing a theatre group or political campaign. Surrounded by like-minded peers, this course will not only train you in management and business knowledge, but help build your confidence so that you know that you’re ready for the challenges ahead. Eligibility and Pre-requisites Students on the Business Management programme: Must conform to our Age Policy. Must be fluent or near-fluent English language speakers – if you are unsure whether your English level is suitable for this programme, please contact our Registrations Team on admin@oxford-royale.co.uk and they will be able to assist you. Must be able to fulfil the basic requirements of the programme, in terms of attendance at lessons, meals and events. Please contact our Registrations Team for more detailed information.

Summer course - Oxford Enterprise Programme (for ages 16-18)

Oxford Royale Academy
Campus Full time 2 weeks June 2017 United Kingdom Oxford Yarnton + 1 more

The Oxford Enterprise Programme is designed to provide students aged 16-18 with a summer course consisting of both academic classes in international business and group activities focusing on leadership. The course is aimed at students who plan to study business at University – the business leaders of the future! [+]

Overview The Oxford Enterprise Programme is designed to provide students aged 16-18 with a summer course consisting of both academic classes in international business and group activities focusing on leadership. The course is aimed at students who plan to study business at University – the business leaders of the future! This programme is also available in London and Cambridge. For students aged 13-15, ORA offers an Introduction to Enterprise course. Academic Content Students are taught the principles of business management, economics and finance in small groups, and will be given the opportunity to learn the principles of accounting, finance, marketing, human resources and business ethics. In addition to the academic classes, skills-based workshops will develop the students’ presentation and leadership skills for the benefit of their future business goals. The programme will include a competitive element in which students will work as a group to research, design and market a new business idea. The programme will culminate with an Enterprise Fair during which students will have the opportunity to present their ideas to others within the school. Learning Objectives By the end of the course students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of: the workings of key economic models, business concepts and management techniques; the different objectives that firms may have; the factors that affect total revenue and total cost; how managers seek to motivate workers; the steps through which businesses progress when they start up and the causes of business failure; the ethical issues faced by firms. Transferable Life Skills Attendees on the Oxford Enterprise Programme are encouraged to work on important key skills during their time with ORA. We believe that the experience of being away from home, living and studying in a college of the University of Oxford or Yarnton Manor, enables our students to develop a suite of transferable skills that go beyond those available to students in their own school environment. Vital for future success in any career, these skills include: developing strengths in independence, self-regulation and self-assessment; confidence in dealing with a wide range of new people and situations; responsibility for own learning, time management, and working with others; communication skills in speaking, listening, and presenting effective arguments in a variety of different contexts. Whom is the Oxford Enterprise Programme aimed at? The Oxford Enterprise Programme is for ambitious students who consider themselves budding entrepreneurs or the business leaders of tomorrow. You’ll be aged between sixteen and eighteen, and you’ll think of yourself as a Bill Gates or Richard Branson of the future. You’ll probably count shows such as The Apprentice and Dragons’ Den among your favourite television programmes, and you perhaps even see yourself as a future contestant on one of them. Whether you’re intent on setting up and running your own business, or you see yourself rising up the ranks in a multinational corporation, this course is for you. The Oxford Enterprise Programme is also suitable for students who merely want to learn more about business, perhaps to support A-level study in a related subject, such as Business Studies or Economics. It’s the ideal background for a business career of any kind, so your longer-term ambitions don’t have to revolve around your becoming a global business giant in order to benefit from attending this course. What’s more, attending this course is a good way of finding out whether or not business is something you want to pursue at university. How will the Oxford Enterprise Programme help me achieve my ambitions? We’ve designed the Oxford Enterprise Programme to be as useful as possible in giving you the strong foundations you need to get started on the right track for a competitive business career. We’ll introduce you to the background theories, models and ideas surrounding economics and business management, giving you an understanding of how a business works. You’ll develop your knowledge of aspects of running a business, such as accounting and finance, marketing, human resources, market research, business ethics and what makes businesses fail – all valuable preparation for a business career. But, more importantly, we’ll help you put that knowledge into practice by looking at real-life case studies, including a visit to Oxford’s thriving MINI plant. You will also be set fun business challenges of your own: our afternoon workshops are focused on helping you develop hands-on experience of what goes on in business, and typically involve you and your fellow students working together in groups to come up with business ideas and develop the idea to the point at which it could be launched into the real world. These business challenges are one of the most popular elements of the Oxford Enterprise Programme. Things get highly competitive as groups of students formulate business ideas and present them along with finance figures, sales and marketing ideas and a business report. These activities give you a deeper appreciation of what’s involved in setting up and running a business of your own, and of the hard work that goes into developing, researching and bringing a product or service to market. On top of this deeper understanding of the workings of a business, you’ll also develop your skills in certain areas that will benefit your business experience and acumen. Examples include – but are by no means limited to – the following: Leadership and management – to be successful in business, you’ll almost certainly find yourself having to manage other people. To do this effectively and get the most from your employees, you’ll need to become adept at motivating other people. While this course doesn’t claim to transform you into the perfect business leader in just two weeks, what it will do is give you an understanding of the techniques managers can use to motivate their employees. Presentation skills – presentations are a fact of life when you’re in business, when you’ll have to pitch your business ideas, products or services to clients, customers and investors. If you dislike having to give presentations at school, or you simply feel that there’s room for improvement in your style and technique, this is your chance to conquer your apprehension and learn how to deliver a slick and impressive presentation. Working in teams – most top business people will tell you that business is fundamentally about getting on with other people; it’s why networking is so important. People like to do business with people they like and enjoy working with, and being personable will get you a long way in the world of business. The Oxford Enterprise Programme gives you invaluable practice at working effectively with others, which is one of the most fundamental aspects of building a name for yourself. To succeed in your career, you need to be able to rise above the sort of squabbles you see on The Apprentice, and you need to develop your ability to contribute ideas, articulate your opinion calmly, and praise the efforts of others. You’ll have the opportunity to do all these things and plenty more during your time at Oxford Royale Academy. Why attend the Oxford Enterprise Programme now? This summer course makes ideal preparation for a business degree, as it introduces you to the concepts you’ll cover in more depth at university, giving you a headstart. What’s more, it’s a way of demonstrating to university admissions tutors that you’re serious about pursuing your goals, and it’s highly relevant experience to talk about on your personal statement. Attending the Oxford Enterprise Programme will benefit your A-level studies, too, and not just Business Studies. For example, the presentation skills you’ll build on during your time with us will come in handy for the presentations you’ll have to give at school (and university beyond that). Your attendance on the Oxford Enterprise Programme will also be a great addition to your CV, as it shows potential employers that you understand more about business than most other applicants. This can be a great benefit even if you’re only looking for short-term work, such as a part-time Saturday job to fit around your studies; it sets you apart from other candidates, shows that you’re someone who takes business seriously, and demonstrates that you’re someone who’s eager to learn from your experience with that employer. With such wide-ranging benefits to this enjoyable summer course, it makes sense to devote a couple of weeks of your summer holidays to coming to Oxford Royale Academy. Eligibility and Pre-requisites Students on the Oxford Enterprise Programme: Must conform to our Age Policy.

THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN SPANISH Ever since the figure of the personal advisor and shopper took shape in the eighties, the world of fashion is alive with professionals who lend advice on anything, from choosing a bunch of flowers to deciding on an outfit for an interview or a wedding. These professionals no longer lend their services exclusively to celebrities and personalities with high purchasing power – they are now available to any average citizen who needs their counsel. Choosing the right outfit for an occasion can be a real issue for anyone who does not have enough time or perhaps taste to do so. The services these professionals offer are precisely intended to find the right look for any occasion, to build a versatile base wardrobe and give tips on beauty and lifestyle. Their goal is to ensure that the client portrays the qualities they wish to convey. In order to offer a full, comprehensive service, PAs are backed by stylists, hairdressers, make-up artists and a variety of other professionals that give their service that extra touch of quality. Objectives The aim of the Course in Personal Assistance and Personal Shopping is to place theoretical and practical knowledge at the students' disposal, enabling them to become skilled professionals in the personal assistance world. The course explores the most essential aspects of a Personal Assistant and Personal Shopper's work: analysing changes in the fields of fashion and beauty; identifying trends in order to adapt them to the client's wants and needs; and guiding them to make the right shopping decisions. Methodology With the aim of making the course more dynamic and of reinforcing the content learnt in class, practical work is also carried out right from day one in every single subject, with exercises based on real and close cases. To complete the course, students are required to present a personal assistance project based on a real case of personal guidance, where they will need to apply all of their knowledge, skills and competence acquired during the course.
