Loading Information

This flagship international programme will give you the skills to flourish in a volatile environment, help you to transition into a strategic general management role, and future-proof your career.

An invigorating six-month programme designed to equip senior managers who are transitioning or have transitioned into general management. The popular GMP is unique because of five key factors: the pedigree of your peers, the pedigree of your lecturers; our focus on intensive coaching; teamwork; and the international immersion in Singapore.

The characteristics of an exceptional general manager include the ability to think more strategically and innovatively, respond more timeously to a turbulent economic environment, and still plan for future success. This is a personalised journey of discovery and growth, known for equipping senior managers with the tools and confidence to be exceptional.
