Cambridge Senior Management Programme

Senior Management Programme

Overview

Cambridge Senior Management Programme is a unique, global learning journey which spans five months, and which aims to facilitate your transition into senior management roles. 

You will begin your learning journey in Cambridge in June 2019 where you will get new perspectives on strategy, followed by an immersion week in Singapore in September 2019 where the focus shifts to managing technology. Upon returning to Cambridge in November 2019 for a final week-long immersion, the programme's focus will move to 'organisational transformation through people'. 

Between these three immersions, you will attend faculty webinars, receive group coaching, work on your development plans and start putting your learning into action. 

You will explore and become immersed in a wide range of management topics during the programme, through interaction with world-renowned Cambridge faculty, a diverse peer group and application of learning though project work. You will emerge from the programme ready to transition into senior management roles.

This programme is being delivered in collaboration with Eruditus Executive Education.
