Management and administration is a key strand of the curriculum.

I’m delighted that the brand new Management School for Authorities will likely be a vanguard throughout the Campus: multi-site; UK-wide; each bodily and digital. It’ll equip our colleagues with the information, abilities, networks, and shared instruments to deal with the challenges of the current day and the long run.

This prospectus defines the School’s preliminary supply and why our method to rising management and administration abilities should change. It units out new responses to our long-term issues: the School’s preliminary programme of labor is the primary waypoint in what will likely be a prolonged, vital journey.

With larger funding in our collective coaching and improvement, I’m assured that we are going to embrace the challenges to come back.
