|Issued by: GetSmarter|
[Johannesburg, 20 August 2015]
The new advanced course portfolio presented by the University of Cape Town, in partnership with GetSmarter, is enabling workers to take big leaps in their careers by equipping them with strategic and lean thinking practices, expanding their knowledge to make a real impact on their organisations.
The advanced courses are specially designed for working professionals who are aspiring to a managerial role, or already in a managerial function.
So, if you're looking to go further in your career, here are five ways these advanced courses will be the vehicle to your success:
1. You'll engage with the course online and part-time
The advanced courses are designed for ambitious working professionals who are strapped for time. So, they'll provide you with the flexibility to study anywhere and at any time that fits your schedule.
2. You'll work with content that speaks to your vast experience
The advanced courses are designed to build on your experience, and empower you with new perspectives, tools, and best practices. On completing the course, you'll know that you have industry-specific skills that are up to date and primed to take on today's complex challenges.
3. You'll learn to implement winning strategies for your organisation
The big focus of these advanced courses is to equip you with a strategy-based skill set that can manage risk and push your organisation in new and exciting directions.
4. You'll learn how to align different areas of your organisation
Your organisation's strategy only excels when everyone's working towards a common purpose. So you'll gain the skill set you need to align the strategy of all departments in the organisation.
5. You'll gain a holistic understanding of the business you work in
To be a top performing manager, it's essential you equip yourself with knowledge and skills that fall outside of your scope of expertise. Not only will this allow you to communicate strategies more effectively, but you'll also get the big picture that allows you to make the big decisions.
The new advanced courses include:
UCT Advanced Operations Management
UCT Advanced Human Resources Management
UCT Advanced Business Risk Management
The duration of these advanced courses range from eight to 12 weeks and require an average study time of 10 to 12 hours a week. To help you get through the work, the course is divided up into weekly modules, and supported by a team that motivates you to succeed.
