  • In today’s Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity (VUCA) world, change and innovation are the main constants, and potential value creation, albeit growing, is challenging and demands effective management. Managers must broaden their competencies and have a far more panoramic view of how business works while simultaneously managing growth and uncertainty, creating new markets, energizing and leading people toward a common goal, and successfully navigating through radical change.

    The Senior Executive diploma provides middle and senior managers with a comprehensive overview of best-practice management in various areas.

    It is designed to look at both components of management skills; hard skills on one side; dispelling any uncertainties about subjects like finance, economics, and strategy, and soft skills on the other; helping managers reflect on themselves and evaluate their approach, techniques, and how they manage people and cultures.

    Participants will transcend looking at business functions as silos. They will be able to connect the dots, analyzing the business environment in a holistic way to come to relevant conclusions and make good business decisions.

    They will also develop an understanding of digital innovation, where they will learn how to evaluate and lead digital transformation initiatives.

    This diploma is a relevant qualification that will help managers elevate their profile and acquire the practical skills needed to deliver genuine, bottom-line value for their organizations.
