More Information

Who should attend?
  • Mid-level managers and leaders - to gain the knowledge and skills required for analysing business issues, then developing and implementing strategic solutions benefiting the organisation as a whole
  • Leaders at any level - to gain insight into business issues and the ability to contribute to strategy formulation and implementation, which could enable promotion opportunities

How you will benefit

This programme offers you tools and models to gain a deeper understanding of the 'organisation-in-the-mind' of the leader and its implications for effective leadership, enabling you, as a leader, to have strategic conversations with your colleagues.

You will gain true leadership skills that cut across traditional silos in the business and create interdisciplinary, even inter-organisational, networks to capitalise on strategic opportunities and resolve strategic issues.

Strategic opportunities might include expansion of the business through internationalisation and risks might include multinational organisations competing with local business. This programme will provide you with insight into internationalisation and defending local businesses against global competition.

Programme Assessment

Throughout the programme, you will have opportunities to test your knowledge, practise application, evaluate your understanding, reflect on your insights and track your improvement with both graded and ungraded assessments.

Module assessments include reflective polls and discussions, multiple-choice quizzes, written assignments and case study applications. You will receive feedback and can discuss ways to improve with GIBS faculty and your peers.
