What’s an Executive programme?
Executive Education is a term that business schools use to describe management development programmes built around individuals, teams, and organisational needs. Executive Education programmes are designed to support your professional development and provide your career advancement.
These courses are different from conventional business education degrees such as an MBA, as they require less time and don’t culminate in a degree. Most Executive Education courses also focus on specific fields such as leadership or strategic business management. Your objective for pursuing an Executive Education programme is tied more to your work experience rather than gaining an advanced qualification.
