The Management Development Program

This program introduces new managers to a broad spectrum of management knowledge, providing them with practical support and helping them accelerate their growth in their organization.


The program’s key topics include leadership, strategy, finance and innovation & disruption. Participants will be provided with a range of opportunities to apply learnings, including acting workshops as well as a unique computer-based simulation.

The simulation is designed to test how managers would cope if they inherited a struggling business in desperate need of leadership. Competing in teams, participants will have to make difficult business decisions to try to positively impact their stock price.

Who is this for?

Participants will either be moving into a general management position, or may have recently done so, or they come from a functional or technical role and are looking for management experience.

“We were paired with a faculty member at the start, and you could meet for lunch or drop them an email. The faculty would go out of their way to find me the relevant information to answer my questions.”
