Our Executive Experience

How we teach

Action learning is key. You will apply theory and cutting-edge research to solve management problems based on real life scenarios. You will get an introduction to study skills and one-to-one coaching from a personal tutor.

A schedule that works for you

Our innovative structure means we only need you for dedicated study block periods. Which means you’ll bring in fresh ideas and insight back into your organisation, right from the start.

Every class is taught by an expert

Our teaching staff are leaders in their research fields, and offer insights into the latest business thinking. We consult with industry partners, and invite guest speakers to enhance the learning experience.

ROI for your organisation

You will be troubleshooting for your organisation from day one. We encourage you to base your assignments and project work on opportunities and challenges from within your organisation. You will apply your new skills to strategic challenges your organisation is facing.

Exclusive Learning Environment

You will be taught in cutting-edge spaces, designed to facilitate interactive and collaborative learning. The executive experience will also provide you with social space in the teaching breaks to network and develop relationships over lunch and coffee.* *included as part of the experience.
