Delivery Model

The Graduate Certificate in Executive Coaching program is a six-day on-site residency, followed by two online courses, and concluded with a final three-day on-site residency. This unique structure provides working professionals with an opportunity to benefit from the synergy of an on-campus experience and learn through the online medium while still meeting professional and personal responsibilities.

Students can expect the residency periods to be quite rigorous. The normal schedule for residencies is from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Homework, readings and team assignments are completed outside of these hours so it is recommended that you keep your evenings available for these activities.

Online Learning
The online portion of our Graduate Certificate in Executive Coaching program takes place over the Internet. There are deadlines for assignments; however, students work through the requirements of the course at their own pace. A number of different information delivery methods are used, including textbooks, articles, case studies, interactive learning and "chat" bulletin boards for corresponding with your team members, who may be on the other side of the country. Students are assigned to a team during the first residency and continue to work together during the online courses.

The online courses are taken consecutively and each course lasts for a period of 12 weeks. Each course requires a level of effort of approximately 20 hours per week. During the first online course, the amount of time required may be higher as students familiarize themselves with our online learning platform.

Advanced Standing
Upon completion of this certificate program, successful graduates may apply for advanced standing in our MBA programs. A portion of the MBA tuition is also waived.

You will develop your coaching and mentoring skills, either to integrate into your existing consultancy and coaching work or to create a solid foundation for a new coaching and consulting practice. The programme takes a relational psychological perspective, which will deepen your clients’ self-awareness and their understanding of the web of key relationships in their organisation. The aim is to develop your ability to respond to, initiate and enable change through the coaching process.

What will you learn?

During the programme you will:
‌•Be introduced to the the latest models and perspectives
‌•Learn about the relational approach to coaching
‌•Develop and broaden your coaching and mentoring skills
‌•Develop greater self-awareness enabling you to use your experience whilst coaching others
‌•Benchmark your approaches as a coach
‌•Understand and be informed by theoretical frameworks that support effective coaching
‌•Practise both familiar and new coaching skills and interventions
‌•Acquire a personal vision of the your own coaching work
‌•Become part of a diverse and experienced community of coaches.

How you will learn?

The programme reflects Ashridge’s philosophy about the nature of change and learning. You will be learning in an environment of reflection and experimentation, rather than simply relying on didactic input. The learning experience draws on the principles of adult learning and development and is well-grounded in research.
It is delivered through short teaching inputs on coaching theories and models, combined with small and large group discussions. Each module also includes ‘co-coaching’ with fellow participants as well as live supervision. In the second year, the programme delivery becomes a collective and deeper inquiry into the main elements of coaching: the coach, the client, the relationship and the organisation.

Expert faculty, research and peer learning

The approaches to executive coaching taught in this Master’s degree are inspired by our own expert faculty publications in the field and by the ongoing research that takes place within the Ashridge Centre for Coaching.
The teaching style of this fully-accredited coaching qualification is informal – we work in a large circle of chairs without tables and use the group process and dynamics to illustrate our points. This is not just a skills development programme – we make the theoretical content easy to digest, by inviting you to critically reflect on theory and practice. We focus on helping you turn knowledge into practice.

About Relational Coaching

The Ashridge approach to coaching involves paying attention to what goes on between the client and coach, and making the relationship explicit. Often this exploration casts new light on the client’s relationship with their organisation.

Relational coaching means understanding that the relationship between coach and client is at the heart of effective coaching and is an essential vehicle for learning and change. A key understanding that informs all our coaching contracts is that each relationship is specific to a particular organisational context.

The client’s agenda will be defined by their organisational context, and so will your relationship with that client, albeit at a more indirect and subtle level.

Clients will inevitably bring their own individual patterns of relating into the coaching arena, replaying their core beliefs and attitudes about themselves and their abilities. The coaching relationship therefore becomes a forum for understanding stale patterns and for experimenting with new ways of being in a relationship.

The theoretical approach is integrative, drawing on a range of sound psychological theories and principles from the fields of coaching, psychological therapies and organisation development. Ashridge coaches work on a relational basis with their clients and are likely to explore on a number of levels. These levels are primarily:

‌•The assumptions clients have about the organisation within which they operate
‌•The relationships that they have with the people within the organisation
‌•What the client personally brings to these relationships.
‌•The relationship between coach and the person being coached is entered into and agreed in an explicit way from the outset. We draw up an initial contract that specifies the boundaries and articulates the intentions and goals for the relationship. However, relationships are dynamic and the contract needs to reflect this. Ashridge believes that change takes place through the process of relating, and this is the whole point of a responsive coaching contract. Therefore, what seemed figural and important at the first meeting may shift to a new way of seeing the situation by the third or fourth meeting.
‌•We see this process of change emerging in relationships as a crucial way of understanding not only what goes on in an effective coaching relationship, but also how change takes place in organisations.

“The Masters programme opened a new door of ongoing learning for me. I have applied and continue to use many of the ideas in my work. It has helped me to define what I do and to make a step change in the level and seniority of clients that I coach.

If you are prepared to challenge yourself academically, be robustly honest with yourself about your coaching practice and enjoy learning interactively, AMEC will be an unforgettable and very rewarding experience.”
Jude Elliman, Director, Listening Partnership Ltd

MSc Professional Development (Applied Neuroscience in Organisations)

Developments in laboratory neuroscience through the 21st century are for the first time now providing an understanding of the brain in action that is of real and practical importance and application in leadership, business and executive coaching. In consequence there is a hugely important historical shift beginning to happen in understanding human behaviour. What was at best descriptive psychological theorising is emerging as a new discipline grounded in an explanatory body of knowledge called Applied Neuroscience.

Many major organisations are starting to apply an understanding of the brain in their leadership development work, marketing, HR, talent management and executive coaching. The source of profit begins to be seen to be the way the brain manages individual energy and how that is channeled or blocked organisationally in pursuing strategic and operational as well as personal goals.

This innovative, leading-edge MSc Programme (doctoral level study through PDF is also an option) will give participants:

A scientifically grounded working knowledge of then brain

Insight into the current state of knowledge and research about the brain with particular reference to what is relevant in the workplace

An understanding of how the brain energy flow occurs and the neurochemistry attached to different brain states and their impact on A scientifically valid understanding of how the sense of Self comes into being and how that guides behaviour

A brain based understanding of how a person self-regulates, notably within the organisation context

The practical application of the knowledge for business professionals within the organisation

An opportunity to produce original research focused on a specialist applied field such as leadership, change management, strategy, marketing, HR & executive coaching

Professional bodies like the ICF, EMCC and APECS recommend that practitioners in coaching and mentoring have a high quality qualification at master’s level. It is essential for people wanting to become a coach/mentor, independent consultant, coaching/mentoring lead, scheme coordinator or executive consultant.

This programme is both research and practice informed and focuses on the latest skills, knowledge and techniques. It is supported by key authors in the field.

Course detail

The programme is designed to meet the needs of adult learners who wish to develop their knowledge of coaching and mentoring, and to develop key practical abilities.

This programme creates an environment in which participants work collaboratively to share information and insights and to develop knowledge and skills in the tradition of the ‘coaching and mentoring way’.

Format

The course is run on a part-time basis and typically takes about one year to complete.

The Flexible Executive MBA is delivered through a blend of face-to-face workshops, activities involving peer-group learning in teams and self-study, on- and offline using a distance-learning approach. Over the 30 months of the course, individuals study and share experiences with like-minded professionals from a wide variety of managerial backgrounds and business industries. The course has a number of aims for its programme members, including:

  • developing strategic, holistic and integrated perspectives on business, organisations and management
  • integrating theory and practice through an approach that combines academic rigour with practitioner relevance
  • providing personal development opportunities to support the development of individuals' management capability and capacity to work in and lead teams in different situations

The Executive MBA is a taught programme delivered by experienced internal and visiting faculty, and complemented by guest practitioner speakers from industry and the professions. Over a two year period, the Executive MBA combines short intensive bursts of classroom interaction with online support. This programme will next commence in September 2018.

Successful businesses in the future will be those that can confidently and capably steer a path through a world characterised by intense competition, rapid technological development, economic turbulence and increasing resource insecurity.

Businesses need leaders who can think and act strategically in this volatile environment, managing the risk and challenges involved, but also spotting and seizing opportunities for efficiency, innovation and new business models. Businesses also need leaders who will act responsibly in delivering value to all stakeholders.

The Edinburgh MBA will prepare participants to progress with confidence into leadership roles in this new world. We will deepen participants’ understanding of how businesses and markets work, how value is created through innovation and marketing, how strategies are crafted, how businesses are financed, how performance is measured, how value is delivered efficiently and effectively, and how organisations should be governed, managed and led through change.

The programme aims to develop leaders who:

  • demonstrate a strategic mind-set and skill-set
  • recognise their role as responsible stewards of financial, social and natural capital
  • are capable of leading improvement, change and innovation in organisations
  • are confident and capable critical thinkers and decision-makers
  • have an international perspective
  • value and take advantage of the benefits of collaborative and lifelong learning

We will instil a passion for business improvement, innovation and entrepreneurial action to help participants lead in the growth or creation of new business opportunities. We will develop participants’ ability to think strategically and beyond disciplinary silos. Successful leadership also requires accomplished interpersonal skills to bring about change in organisations. Through coaching and skills training, we will work with participants to understand their leadership strengths and weaknesses and provide support for improvement.

Programme structure

The programme is delivered in a modular format and is next commencing in September 2018. The main taught part of the programme is delivered over 21 months, followed by completion of a Capstone Project. Participants will complete the full programme within 27 months.

The design of the modules reflects consideration given to the balance between participant and employer investment and maintaining work-life balance. For most participants, attending modules will mean taking one day a month from their normal working week and one day from their weekend with modules commencing Friday lunchtime and ending early Saturday evening.

Most of the core courses will run over three months, with one day per course on each of three weekends (with the exception of Strategic Leadership which will be taught in a series of three blocks across both years). Option courses will be delivered in the middle of Year 2 and will be taught in intensive one-week blocks. Between modules, participants will work on assignments and undertake further reading and study, supported by online resources and discussion forums.

The Executive MBA is primarily delivered in a classroom format, but learning is supported by extensive electronic resources and the opportunity to discuss ideas and concepts with colleagues and tutors through regular discussion forums. This Executive MBA is not a distance-learning programme: on-campus attendance at courses is required at regular intervals as outlined in the programme structure. You should verify your eligibility to study in the UK before applying.

The programme combines rigorous academic study with practical application. This is achieved both in the classroom through case studies but also via assessments that directly relate to the participants’ own organisations. There will also be opportunities to undertake consultancy-style project work with external organisations, to broaden participants’ insights into alternative business models and approaches.

Core courses include:

  • Strategic Leadership
  • Strategic Marketing
  • Organising for Effectiveness
  • Operations Improvement
  • Understanding Economies
  • Finance
  • Accounting
  • Entrepreneurial Leadership
  • Creative Strategy
  • Leading Strategic Change
  • Qualitative Methods and Tools
  • Research Methods for Capstone Project
  • Professional Development

Participants can also select from a range of option courses. Participants also undertake a major capstone project. In parallel with academic study, the programme is complemented by a Leadership and Professional Development programme and personal coaching.

Career opportunities

The employment market is highly competitive but the Edinburgh MBA is distinctive and will provide participants with a competitive edge. MBA participants will also engage in a Leadership and Professional Development programme that includes personal diagnostics, career planning and skills enhancement designed explicitly to support participants in their pursuit of promotion or new careers.
