 Opportunity for Northern Cape business to smarten up skills

2015-06-10 00:00
Northern Cape executives and managers in both the private and public sector will now have the opportunity to smarten up their business skills.

USB Executive Development (USB-ED), the public executive development and training company of the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB), will for the first time present its face-to-face Management Development Programme (MDP)  in Kimberley.
According to Willemien Law, USB-ED director of Open Programmes, the aim is to allow individuals and businesses in and around Kimberley the opportunity to partake in management development with as little as possible interruption to work commitments.

The programme will be presented in Kimberley over two study schools from 27 to 31 July and 14 to 18 September 2015.
The MDP  is aimed at those who wish to have a broader understanding of management and leadership in an organisation. The programme provides a broader understanding of management and leadership and in this way equips managers with the necessary skills and knowledge to implement the strategic goals of their organisations.

Some of the subject areas that will be covered are leadership, general management, people management and marketing.



“This programme is aimed at middle managers who are currently managing others, or have the potential to manage others or who wish to grow and develop their management abilities.

“No formal tertiary qualifications are required, but participants should preferably have one to two years of management experience at junior management entry level. The programme provides a basic understanding of the different fields of management to ensure that managers do not perform their own management functions in isolation.
“It affords participants the ideal opportunity to position themselves favourably in today’s demanding and challenging business world and enhance their careers with sort after management and leadership skills.

“This could be the start of a life-long career path with the help of USB Executive Development,” Law said.
