So far for me, the General Management Certificate of Achievement gave me the opportunity to get a broader view because I’m working in the HR industry, and there’s a very narrow perspective. But with the opportunity of the General Management Certificate, you have a broader view and also get to know other industries and departments, which is very important for future development.
I think the GMCA programme is a very good programme when you are looking at the executive level so that you have some new insights and kind of a bird’s eye perspective so that you get a little bit out of your day-to-day work. If I think somebody is considering doing the general management certificate, it is a very good opportunity to network because you have a very international community here.
So it was very, very interesting for me. I have done different courses in this certificate. And I have met not any person twice. So every time, new people from different countries– far countries, nearer countries. So it is always very, very interesting. And because of those diverse cultures, we have a very, very good learning experience. So I would just would recommend it to everybody.
My professional objective, along through this journey, have changed that I think you gained the basic skill set to be an executive. You not only get a basic knowledge according to specific topics, you also get insights from other people, how they are dealing with their employees, and so on.
This is a very good information for you, how you can, for yourself, deal with your employees on a better level. For example, one course was on ethical decision-making, how you can implement that in day-to-day life to have a good failure culture into the company, that failures are not covered. So failures are open-minded. And this was very interesting.
The one thing is that you get new insights. You get to know new things about technology changes, so really good knowledge. And on the other hand, you have this big brand of Cambridge. And this combination of those two is a very good boost for your CV and for your recognition when you are searching for another employer, or you are searching for employees. It is well known in the world, and highly recognised.
In most USA training programmes there’d be participants with a similar background, but at Cambridge everyone had different experiences so it made the teaching and discussion very rich. It was amazing. I’d recommend the programme to anyone and I will definitely be coming back to Cambridge.
