On this intensive six-day residential program, you will access the best applied leadership and management models, frameworks and theories from the world’s most respected executive MBA programs.


6 days residential



The Advanced Management Program (AMP) is the trusted pathway for professionals and leaders wanting to take the next step in their careers. It challenges you to seek a deeper understanding of your leadership capabilities and management expertise, as you contribute to the senior levels of your organisations. The program allows you to shift from being ‘in the job’ to ‘across the job’, with broader organisational mindset and a greater strategic perspective.

You are encouraged to challenge your organisational strategy and operations perspectives, augmented by insights into your individual leadership values and capabilities. The Advanced Management Program allows you to release yourself from traditional work practices, encouraging you to step back and integrate broader insights into new management and leadership challenges.

Facilitated by a globally respected team of faculty and professional experts, learning is achieved through interactive teaching, guided discussion, case study analysis, simulations, peer review and personal coaching methodologies.

Condensed from its origins in business school based, accredited Executive MBA programs, the Advanced Management Program includes the basic building blocks of leadership and management theory, strategic and financial management; organisational performance; negotiation skills; and innovation, change and marketing management.
