USB Executive Development Ltd (USB-ED) is for the first time presenting its Senior Management Development Programme (SMDP) in Gauteng. It aims to equip senior managers with the necessary knowledge and skills to function effectively in a uniquely Southern African environment. There are three study schools with the first study school taking place from 2 to 6 June 2008 in Gauteng.
The Senior Management Development Programme has been successfully presented in Cape Town and Windhoek.
It focuses on all management functions where a generalist rather than a specialist approach is adopted. Crucial management functions for example, entrepreneurial management, financial management and systems thinking is covered on this unique programme.
Participants are required to integrate skills acquired during the course of this programme into a group project which they then need to present to a panel at the end of the programme.
The second study school takes place from 28 July to 1 August 2008 and the third study school from 15 to 19 September 2008.
In the break between the study schools, participants are required to complete practical assignments applicable to their own work environment.
No formal tertiary qualifications are required to enroll in this programme. Participants should have experience and a basic knowledge of the programme topics and understanding of the subject matter presented in USB-ED's Management Development Programme or equivalent.
Participants who do not have a basic knowledge of finance should attend USB-ED's Programme in Financial Management for Non-Financial Managers prior to attending the SMDP. Five years in middle to senior management is recommended.
There is an opportunity to enrol for this programme presented in Gauteng.
