Rooted in workplace, this programme of learning provides a distinctive degree-level manager development qualification, which balances intellectual challenges with business and workplace practice across all areas of management, leadership and career development.
The CMDA is part of a wider Government initiative to support and enable the development of skills in the workplace through apprenticeships. At the Liverpool Business School we see manager and leader development as a lynchpin for the wider development of skills and talent needed to deliver improved performance in organisations.
While the apprenticeship initiative has the potential to act as a springboard for skills development, crucially it is managers and leaders who need to identify and develop talent, and it is managers that can help organisations make the most of their emerging talent. How skills are brought together in an organisation matters, and managers play a pivotal role in making this happen.
