General Manager Diploma

What is the program about?

Today business happens anywhere. An 18-year old runs a cabana on Airbnb, your uncle may be driving an UBER vehicle for a living, you won´t buy something in a shop before checking prices and availability on, will you? And people no longer book their holidays through a travel agent but by themselves online. The world has changed and so has management.

Are you ready for it?

Next generation management is what this program is about. It takes you a step further than your regular management program which compartmentalizes management into functional areas which the business of the digital age does not need.
Today you must design a business around what customers require, not around a product. This will make you and the business you work for successful.
Our expert team has analyzed more than 100 businesses across the globe and come up with the formula for development for the next generation.

Do you want to bring your own career or your family´s business to the next level?

Then you must learn what the business of today and tomorrow are really about. So next generation management programs are not about “Marketing”, “HR”, “Finance”. This is what they look like. This is what the top companies of the world want their people to be able to deliver.
