The Programme is offered in partnership with commissioning organisations, and provides already competent and experienced professionals time to develop as reflective practitioners/managers, whilst also studying the larger corporate scene.
It also operates on a part-time basis because that enables managers to draw upon real management problems in the workplace.
Students learn to deal with complex management matters, gain enhanced decision making skills, communication and presentation skills, problem solving experience, and increased autonomy - all in the field of strategic management within their sector.
The Programme develops each manager’s strategic approach to learning and enhances his or her ownership of continuous learning and professional, personal and managerial development. Throughout the link between the organisations strategic aims and the managers learning remain central.
The overall aim of the Programme is to broaden managers’ skills so that they may deal with the challenges of the future. In particular the Programme aims to ensure that successful students will:
- be more strategic in their thinking - keep abreast of changes - learn more from each other and other significant players - make better use of resources - manage knowledge more effectively - be more flexible and creative - possess highly tuned skills for negotiation
The course is run in partnership between a collaborative / commissioning partner and the University of Chichester, operating on ‘self-managed’ learning principles and building on practical work experience and uses action learning sets.
