The scale and breadth of technological innovations is dramatically reshaping the way in which business is done. Advances in technology trends including artificial intelligence and machine learning helps make operations within businesses more efficient, while digital fabrication technologies like 3D printing enables companies to bring manufacturing closer to customers.
In order to create strategies that allow their companies to keep abreast of this change, operate efficiently, and implement management systems that result in sustainable growth, managers, management graduates and mid-career professionals embrace continuous learning.
The perfect avenue for delivering this is through postgraduate or executive education programmes, which enable mid-career graduates, managers and leaders to become empowered with the latest thought leadership and case studies on innovation, design thinking, strategy, decision-making, and leadership methodology.
These programmes enable you to set yourself up for a brighter future, while also empowering your company to achieve greater success, by way of your expanded set of skillsets. Executive education programmes range from short learning programmes that equip employees with sought after skillsets that are required for employees to thrive in the fourth industrial era such as mobile app development and change management programmes, through to more expansive and all-encompassing management courses.
Longer courses such as a Postgraduate Diploma in Corporate Governance, enable graduates to fulfil any role in organisational leadership, particularly at senior management and board director level. Whereas globally-focused degrees such as a Master of International Business degree provided the skills graduates and employees need to operate from a global perspective.
'It is also very worthwhile for companies, because their employees and managers obtain future-proof skills and the ability required to identify factors that drive the growth of the business and can then use their newly obtained leadership and managerial skills to maximise that growth and help ensure that the business operates more efficiently,' concludes Professor Louw.
