Curriculum

Overview & Modules

The Accelerated Management Programme comprises 6 long weekends - spread over 6 months - of intensive general management training for working professionals with some or no previous training in management. It provides a broad-based, practical introduction to the main concepts and practices of management, combined with practical insight that is ready to be applied directly to the workplace.

 

Begin your transformational journey by building key knowledge and skills in six management areas. Optional refresher courses in Mathematics and Business Statistics and Excel for Finance and Database are offered in October.

The course will enable learners to understand and apply 10 very effective tools to build strong leadership, understand what kind of leadership their organisation and people need to generate great results and adapt their behaviour as a leader.

CEO
Benelux Sodexo Belgium
“I hold a legal position, and I wanted to broaden my vision of the company, to better manage its components and better assist it via the opinions I give. The content of the Accelerated Management Programme attracted me because of its very rich content, its international dimension, the quality of its participants, and the fact that it was perfectly compatible with my professional life. I’ve been able to put directly into practice what I learned there as part of Sodexo's global expansion. The Accelerated Management Programme has enabled me to better understand the philosophy behind this type of evolution and communicate it in a coherent way to my team.”

"In order to shift from a technical to a managerial position, I was looking for a general management training that was lacking in my scientific background (...).

The modules are taught by experienced people from the private sector. The Accelerated Management Programme provides you with numerous networking opportunities, an eye-opening experience on the possibilities ahead, and a sound basis in the pillars of management that I intend to develop in my career."
