Centre for Management Development

Three Strategic Areas

  • Executive Education
  • Business Advisory Services
  • Research

Executive Education

The Centre develops and delivers executive level training on leadership and on a variety of customised business topics. Faculty members have unique backgrounds and valuable insights into many aspects of business that can be translated into an interactive learning approach.

Business Advisory Services

The Centre offers an extensive array of business advisory services provided by students and Faculty member teams. To increase students’ exposure to the business community, highly accomplished students play a role in business advisory services. Not only are students able to apply their knowledge to support enterprise development or enterprise growth, but businesses are given the opportunity to work with potential future employees. Faculty members are involved in supervising and supporting students on their projects.


The Centre also undertakes research engagements of both a qualitative and quantitative manner to assist businesses in decision making around problems and issues. This often includes creation and completion of surveys on behalf of clients.
