For more than 40 years, AIM WA+UWA Business School Executive Education’s Advanced Management Program (AMP) has been a trusted pathway for professionals and leaders wanting to take the next step in their careers. It challenges participants to seek a deeper understanding of their leadership capabilities and management expertise, as they contribute to the senior levels of their organisations. The program allows participants to shift from being ‘in the job’ to ‘across the job’, with broader organisational mindset and a greater strategic perspective.
Participants on this intensive residential program access the best applied leadership and management models, frameworks and theories from the world’s most respected executive MBA programs. Participants are encouraged to challenge their organisational strategy and operations perspectives, augmented by insights into their individual leadership values and capabilities. The AMP allows participants to release themselves from traditional work practices in order to step back and integrate broader insights into new management and leadership challenges.
Facilitated by a globally respected team of faculty and professional experts, learning is achieved through interactive teaching, guided discussion, case study analysis, syndicate projects, peer review and personal coaching methodologies. Cutting edge case studies are used from the West Australian, Australian and global economies, including from leading global business schools.
Condensed from its origins in business school based, accredited Executive MBA programs, the AMP includes the basic building blocks of management theory, strategic and financial management; managing human capital; organisational performance; negotiation skills; and innovation, change and marketing management. Highly credentialed and respected Chief Executive guest speakers present on a range of topics including leadership, sustainability, growth and talent retention and attraction.
