Executive Development Programme

Application Deadline: 17 September 2021
Course starts: 17 October 2021

The UCT GSB Executive Development Programme is a high-impact short course designed to equip senior leaders with the strategic thinking, innovative mind-set and values-based leadership needed to ensure long-term competitive advantage for their organisations.

Today’s organisations need innovative thinkers to build sustainable businesses with a competitive edge. The UCT GSB’s Executive Development Programme will advance your capacity to leverage core competencies, stay ahead through innovation and pursue heroic goals despite resource constraints.

The programme assumes that, as a senior manager or executive, you already understand your strengths and weaknesses and have the necessary management skills. Rather than focusing on traditional functional and personal development therefore, the EDP takes a novel approach to learning and un-learning. You will be required to shed mental models that are no longer effective and develop new ways of thinking, acting and being.

The UCT GSB is a globally-accredited business school with a world-class reputation and is one of just 89 business schools in the world to be triple-crown accredited.
