Course Detail

Program Overview

Emerging leaders and professionals, who are experts in one area, are often limited by their ability to work with managers across functions. This affects their potential for senior management responsibilities, which are inherently cross-functional.

The course has been designed with the objective to familiarize participants with key aspects of management and leadership. Participants gain knowledge about critical business functions which will help them develop appropriate leadership skills to drive results and execute business strategies effectively.
