This course is one of a very few aimed at mid-career professionals wishing to make the move to senior management within industrial and manufacturing organisations.

We designed it to provide the business expertise essential for senior managers by combining specific engineering subjects with managing technology and manufacturing systems.

You examine the latest business thinking and gain expert knowledge of engineering and technology issues and theories.

We combine topics such as

* finance
* marketing
* management strategy with modern industrial issues such as
* project and quality management
* manufacturing effectiveness
* advanced manufacturing technology
* supply chain management.

This mix of subjects reflects the challenges faced by today´s traditional manufacturing organisations.
