I already have an executive MBA, so I was looking for– I came with some topics in my mind and objectives to explore, to complement my knowledge. One of them was to validate some thinking with faculty and colleagues and classmates on certain topics. The other one was to find out certain models and frameworks and approaches that I can use in practise. And finally, also, to use this course as a stepping stone to the General Management Certificate of Achievement.
I found this programme very, very interesting, but also pretty challenging. One of the key benefits of this course is that it applies theory into practise there and then. So key topics and concepts are ingrained in your memory.
A project at the macro level is a process. But also, good and successful projects, although they are unique in their own right, they have many standardised processes within them. For people that would like a hands-on project management course, this is not it. For people that would like to look at key topics and concepts from the strategic level, then this is the right place to be.
