In Professional Development offers various programmes of study for managers and leaders including:


The Mini-MBA

Our Mini-MBA takes its inspiration from the Masters of Business Administration (MBA) programme, one of the UK’s most popular postgraduate courses. We select a number of key elements from the MBA syllabus and deliver them in an accessible, condensed form for those managers who do not have the time needed to gain the academic award.

It’s a highly applied and participative programme.

The Director’s Development Programme (DDP)

Our Director’s Development Programme (DDP) is a practical and interactive programme designed for the personal and professional development of senior organisational leaders, business owners and aspiring directors.

Being a director can empower you to inspire and lead others but it also comes with a range of challenges, expectations and legal responsibilities. Learn how to deal effectively with the challenges and opportunities you may face.
