Now, more than ever, businesses need dynamic strategic direction at board level. Qualified directors can help you stay ahead of the competition, recognise and create opportunities, remain composed throughout periods of challenge and lead your organisation to success. Read more
Now, more than ever, businesses need dynamic strategic direction at board level. Qualified directors can help you stay ahead of the competition, recognise and create opportunities, remain composed throughout periods of challenge and lead your organisation to success.

The IoD’s award-winning Company Direction Programme covers the main essentials of directing a company and reflects the overall knowledge, understanding and experience necessary to be a professionally competent Director. Whether you are an experienced, newly appointed or prospective Director, the programme will ensure you clearly understand what your role as a director is (and is not), and equip you to successfully direct your organisation from a strategic perspective.

It also provides you with a route to Chartered Director status. In short, it has become the recognised boardroom qualification.

See the website http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/sbe/executive-education/programmes/accredited/iod/

About the Programme

A dynamic and professional board of directors has a collective responsibility to ensure that each member is contributing positively, able to perform effectively and ready to help lead the organisation. New directors will need to understand their role and how to be more effective, established directors will need to keep up to date with the latest thinking and trends, and the whole board will need to understand the implications and relevance of corporate governance in order to operate effectively.

Delivered at Loughborough University, the IoD’s chosen institution to deliver the Company Direction Programme for the East Midlands, this programme is delivered through a series of short business-orientated modules, combined with e-learning. This allows you to benefit from superb teaching from experts in their field, excellent networking opportunities with other directors and minimum disruption to your business.

All teaching is designed by directors to ensure it is strategically focussed and geared towards application in the real world, maximising your return on investment. Modules can also be taken individually as short courses, if that suits your needs better.

Our staff are especially experienced at working in partnership with the business community, offering advice and guidance throughout your training. Learning is action based and participative, and your ideas and experiences are shared with other Directors. Each course provides a forum for discussion and interchange of ideas among the participants.

Recent IoD participants include:
- Aarsleff Piling
- Checkprint Ltd
- Finesse Hotels
- Greenbank Group UK Ltd
- Hammonds Furniture Ltd
- Merck Chemicals Ltd
- Mortons Media Group
- Nottingham Emergency Medical Services
- Rutland Plastics Ltd
- Schlűter-Systems Ltd
- Ward Recycling
- Walton Garden Buildings
- Westerman Homes

The Certificate and Diploma in Company Direction (Chartered Director, stages 1 & 2) are based on a blended learning principle, making them the most time-efficient way to keep you up-to-date with your changing responsibilities as a director. Individuals are supported along a continuous development path from knowledge acquisition through to exploring the application of this knowledge in a realistic and relevant environment.

IoD development programmes will equip you, as a director, with the key skills, knowledge and understanding essential for successfully directing an organisation from a strategic perspective. They lead to recognised qualifications: the Certificate and Diploma in Company Direction, and ultimately, to Chartered Director status.

The Certificate in Company Direction (Chartered Director, stage 1) consists of four mandatory modules, via 10 taught days. The programme encompasses the knowledge and understanding necessary to function effectively as a director. To be awarded this qualification you must successfully complete all the modules and the Certificate examination. Once you have completed the Certificate in Company Direction, the Diploma in Company Direction is the next step.

The Diploma in Company Direction (Chartered Director, stage 2) provides the opportunity to put into practice the knowledge and understanding gained from the Certificate with a 3-day ‘Developing Board Performance’ module followed by the Diploma examination. The Diploma Programme is designed to encourage peer group support and provides challenging and stimulating scenarios, mirroring in many ways the operation of a board.

The Certificate and Diploma programmes provide the route to those directors wishing to achieve Chartered Director status, a unique qualification available to directors who have demonstrated the requisite knowledge and experience to act in this professional capacity.

The opportunity to visit and communicate regularly with a company will be particularly beneficial to you as an international student from the point of view of business engagement and real-life practical experience. You will be supported through this experience by the module teaching team to propose research-led solutions to a real business issue for a real company.

The true ‘real-life’ knowledge the students learn throughout the program is one of the main reasons graduates have an extremely high placement success rate.

What is strategic management?

Strategic management is an essential component of company growth and survival and encompasses two main components:

  • Strategic analysis, i.e. identification of major trends and sources of opportunities:
  • ‘External analysis’ consists of identifying the forces that constrain a firm –be it from the industry or from competition- and determining the paths of action in order to reach success; 
  • and ‘Internal analysis’ refers to identifying performance leverages within a firm by assessing the available resources and determining paths of performance.Structure and organization, i.e. how a company is designed and manages projects. This includes central functions such as planning, management control and information systems. It also deals with employees’ commitment, corporate values and culture.

In short, Strategic management is the art of correctly positioning a firm in a turbulent environment in order to map out a path of unique and unmatchable excellence. It requires a great command of analytical frameworks and a rigorous mind.

Program details

The HEC Paris MSc Strategic Management is an exciting intellectual challenge building upon the specific knowledge and experience that our academic team brings to the program, but also upon the students’ qualities. The program is very intense and demanding and is comprised of mandatory core courses, workshops with firms, a company project, but also elective courses, which allow them to tailor their curriculum according to their interests and career goals.

ISMM is very different to any other academic course: it combines traditional teaching material with a series of industrial visits, some of which will take place overseas. The course members work a full industrial week and conform to business dress codes. This intensive, practical programme gives direct experience of many different industries, cultures and working environments, and the projects present real challenges in genuine industrial and business environments. The aim of the course is to equip numerate graduates with the skills, personal development and industrial experience to be immediately effective in their early careers in industry.

ISMM will broaden your perspective and experience and open the door to a wide range of industrial careers. Many blue chip companies recognise the value of the course and target our graduates. Equally, for those who want to work in a smaller company, ISMM gives the confidence to start directly in a manufacturing engineering or management role. Those with entrepreneurial flair go on to set up their own companies.

The programme is structured around taught modules, company visits and in-company projects solving live business or technical problems. An overseas study tour offers a broader international context and the individual research thesis allows greater depth of study in a specific area of manufacturing.

See the website http://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/courses/directory/egegmpimm

Course detail

During the year you will acquire a working understanding of the fundamentals of a business enterprise, with a particular emphasis on manufacturing disciplines. You will visit up to forty companies, large and small, chosen to cover all industrial sectors; you will absorb the different cultures and learn to identify strengths and weaknesses. By the end of the course you will be in a perfect position to choose your career direction.

Skills acquired during the course include:

- critical analysis;
- creativity – the generation of innovative solutions;
- evaluation of designs, processes and products;
- balancing theory and practice;
- problem identification, definition and solution;
- data gathering, evaluation and analysis;
- effective communication written, verbal and graphic;
- preparation of business and finance cases;
- presentation preparation and delivery;
- project management;
- report writing;
- a 'can do' attitude;
- teamworking;
- appreciating the responsibilities of leadership

Format

Teaching is delivered through a variety of media. During Cambridge termtimes, there will be traditional academic lectures and interactive seminars; the dissertation is based in one of the Institute for Manufacturing's research groups and will involve normal graduate-level supervision. However, much of the learning during the course takes place during the industrial visits (of which there are approximately forty annually), and on the projects themselves. During the projects, students can expect to receive substantial 'supervisory' feedback from their line managers and colleagues. Academic assessment of the course is split into three components: examinations on module material; assessment of project reports; examination of the dissertation.

Placements

In addition to the series of industrial visits, students will undertake four two-week industrial placements over the course of the programme. During this time they will be working on live business/technical issues relevant to the company, and will be treated as an employee. These placements will terminate in a presentation to the Senior Management of the company, and in the writing of a handover report that will be examined as part of the course assessment.

Assessment

All students will be required to write a dissertation of no greater than 15,000 words. Achieving a passing mark on this dissertation is a precondition for obtaining the degree.

All students are required to write four project reports, each of which will be based on two weeks of project work on an issue relevant to a host company.

Four taught modules will be assessed through written assessments under timed conditions.
At the discretion of the Examiners, candidates may be required to take an additional oral examination on the work submitted during the course, and on the general field of knowledge within which it falls.

Students can expect to receive reports at least termly on the Cambridge Graduate Supervision Reporting System. They will have access to a University supervisor for their dissertation, and can expect to receive input from their line managers during project placements.

Continuing

The MPhil is a professional practice programme and is not specifically designed to lead on to doctoral research. Nevertheless, students wishing to apply for continuation to a PhD in Engineering at Cambridge would normally be expected to attain an overall mark of at least 70%.

Overview

Modern managers need to take into account the fast-paced nature of change and internationalisation in the world of business. The MA International Business offers robust grounding in distinct aspects of management and global business.

Alongside lectures and seminars we have developed a study trip. This brings a chance to explore your personal and team building skills and to undertake a consultancy study of an international enterprise. There is also an opportunity to undertake an Applied Company Research project where you will learn ‘on the job’ in real life businesses.

Enhancing your Career

The programme will give you an edge in the job market enabling you to compete more effectively with traditional graduates with a first degree and enabling you to enter management at a higher level than you would have been able to with only a first degree. For those interested in pursuing academic research this programme is an invaluable stepping stone to a doctorate or other research degree.

See the website https://www.keele.ac.uk/pgtcourses/internationalbusiness/

Course Aims

The programme adopts a critical management studies perspective, contributing to (and pre-dating) the current debates regarding the future of capitalism and the often problematic relationship between globalisation, organisation and the wider social environment. Our teaching and learning strategy is wide-ranging and innovative, seeking to give students a rich learning environment that draws actively on both academic research and business practice.

In the first semester, if you have a business and management background at first degree level, you will add to this knowledge by taking advanced modules. If you have a degree in another discipline you will be able to draw on the generic knowledge and skills you have gained from that discipline. You will follow the same advanced course material with structured reading to allow you to become quickly acquainted with business and management concepts.

In the second semester you specialise in International Business. Here you will be able to move to a deeper knowledge and understanding of business and management in the global economy. You will also start preparatory work towards your dissertation or applied company research project with a series of research methods seminars.

Teaching & Assessment

Modules are taught in lectures, tutorials and seminars. Taught modules are usually assessed by a mixed diet of examinations and coursework, the latter including essays, practical projects, reports and presentations.

Guidance is provided on dissertation topics and each student will be assigned a supervisor. Guidance is also provided for the applied company research project and each student will be assigned an academic mentor.

From May to September students are required to write a research-based dissertation in an area of choice on an approved topic related to the pathway they have chosen, or write a report based on an in-company consultancy project. Aspiring applicants for the applied company research project must meet the required selection criteria demanded by both School and facilitating organisation.

The applied company research project will be available for Masters students during the period June-September. The student will be able to apply to take on a real commercially relevant, University agreed project, for a local organisation. This is a remarkable opportunity to learn to manage a discreet project from start to finish or to work as part of a wider group on larger strategically important projects.

Additional Costs

Apart from additional costs for text books, inter-library loans and potential overdue library fines, we do not anticipate any additional costs for this postgraduate course.

Graduate Attributes

The Graduate Attributes Statement is designed to raise awareness of the attributes that will be developed whilst you are a student at Keele University. It explains each of the attributes in detail, tips on how to achieve them and how they relate to your chosen programme of study.

Overview

What happens in the world of business and public administration? How is innovation managed in company strategies? How does government design policy? How can innovation and policy address sustainability, health, energy and IT security issues?

Both the public sector and businesses struggle with the question of how to address sustainability, health, energy and IT security issues. Many of the challenges that society faces are rooted in the natural or computer sciences but have strong links to other disciplines. Solutions require scientists with an additional understanding of the societal aspects of these problems, and the ability to speak the language of and work with all possible stakeholders like scientists, civil servants and politicians.

In the Master's in Science, Management and Innovation you will broaden your scientific knowledge and learn the skills you can use to make a direct contribution to society.

See the website http://www.ru.nl/masters/science/smi

Flexible and specialised

This specialisation is available in the Master's in Biology, Chemistry, Computing Sciences, Mathematics, Medical Biology, Molecular Life Sciences, Physics and Astronomy, and Science. Students gain advanced knowledge in their preferred science, and also choose a theme to structure their programme to gain specialised skills in one aspect of science management and innovation.

Career prospects

Master’s students who complete this specialisation end up in a number of different positions, such as government policy officer, Research & Development manager in a company, Sales manager in a company, or Project manager at a research institute or knowledge centre.

Skills that you acquire could also prepare you for a career in a large consultancy company, such as Accenture or McKinsey. Several of our graduates have gone on to become entrepreneurs and start their own company, but others work for civil society organisations or applied research for society.

Our research in this field

During your research project, you’ll work outside of the university in a company or organisation on a real-world research problem in your chosen theme.

The Nijmegen approach

The first thing you will notice as you enter our Faculty of Science is the open atmosphere. This is reflected by the light and transparent building and the open minded spirit of the working, exploring and studying people that you will meet there. No wonder students from all over the world have been attracted to Nijmegen. You study in small groups, in direct and open contact with members of the staff. In addition, Nijmegen has excellent student facilities, such as high-tech laboratories, libraries and study ‘landscapes'.

Studying by the ‘Nijmegen approach' is a way of living. We will equip you with tools which are valuable for the rest of your life. You will be challenged to become aware of your intrinsic motivation. In other words, what is your passion in life? With this question in mind we will guide you to translate your passion into a personal Master's programme.
