Our approach

This new program is project-based, meaning you’ll practice hands-on strategic thinking and planning skills using your own business cases. You’ll also engage in practical and critical thinking to reflect and project yourself into your current or future work environment. Teachers will use case studies, group discussions, team presentations and introspection questionnaires to apply your learning to real-world experiences. Most importantly, you’ll be challenged to apply data insights to all aspects of your work.

Who benefits most?

  • New and lower-level managers who want to move into a higher management role.
  • Individuals in marketing, communications advocacy or public affairs who want to apply best management practices to improve the effectiveness of their work.
