Replicates the Global Business Environment

Those that address problems alone stand alone, but those that form a strong team and tackle a problem in a cohesive, synergistic manner, ask challenging questions and devise the strongest of formulas for change, they therefore realise their goals in an empowering fashion. For this reason, your classmates, from various business backgrounds, are your winning team.

Assessment is based upon the areas that are relevant to professionals in a leadership position; we will appraise your diagnosis of the problem, your plan of action, your field research, your evaluation of the situation, and how you implement the plan to resolve the issue. Finally, we will assess your personal reflection of the situation; what you learned through the process and what if anything you will change next time.

Our specialised coaches encourage student interaction and lively discussion within the virtual class environment. Renowned module instructors and our in-house staff play a vital role during your visit with us at the international residency conferences. Here you have the opportunity to ask the most challenging of questions, dispute theories and exchange inspirational experiences.
