SPECIALISATION IN PROJECT AND PROGRAMME MANAGEMENTThis specialisation is devoted to new approaches to management and leadership. It develops participants’ analytical skills as well as their sense of initiative and the agile mindset essential for leading project-based organisations. Managers in such organisations have to reason in terms of results-based performance. They must create an environment that nurtures continuously successful projects. This requires exemplary piloting of costs, effective project governance and management of risks resulting in new potentially profitable opportunities. The success of such organisations lies in their capacity to respond to – or even to go beyond – clients’ expectations on all projects undertaken on their behalf.
A UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL COACHING PROGRAMMEThe SKEMA Executive MBA is the only programme in the world to base its personal development module on the Leadership Diamond®, a Philosophy in Business (PiB®) developed by the philosopher and professor Peter Koestenbaum. Being a great leader means understanding change and anxiety in both ourselves and others. Being able to manage the confusion caused by this ambiguity makes all the difference. The individual coaching provided in the Executive MBA introduces participants to the most modern and relevant leadership ways of thinking, acting and being. Participants develop a comprehensive picture of their current leadership situations and use the Leadership Diamond® to compare them to what is possible. They engage in theory, actions, examples, personal conversations, role playing, planning for the future, and more– all in a unique, deeply nurturing, supportive environment.
