UCD Executive Education Launches New Diploma in Advanced Management Performance

Date: 28 Nov 2013

DUBLIN – November 28, 2013 - UCD Executive Education is delighted to announce the launch of our new part-time Diploma in Advanced Management Performance (AMP), scheduled to take place from January to September 2014, on UCD Smurfit School campus. The programme is a powerful and transformational learning experience that explores best management practices and the latest strategies for sustaining a competitive advantage over the long term.

AMP focuses on providing executives with the advanced decision-making and execution skills needed to excel as leaders. Participants build an integrated perspective of their organisation’s functional capabilities, augmented by insights into their individual values, capabilities and leadership styles.

Participants will work closely with UCD faculty to develop a broad, integrated organisational perspective on general management and collaborate on ways to incorporate these skills in their own businesses.

“We developed this programme to give senior executives an opportunity to step back and explore their development as influencers in their business, building the confidence they need to drive innovation, performance and effective decision making across their organisations,” said Professor Patrick Gibbons, Academic Director, UCD Executive Education. “Successful businesses know that investing in the next generation of leaders is critical to sustaining competitive advantage and achieving corporate growth over the long term.”

Senior executives and functional specialists looking to transition into senior, general management or preparing for greater business unit responsibilities are encouraged to take this programme. Each group of participants will represent diverse business functions, companies and industries.

“AMP will provide valuable insights for executives looking to increase their ability to lead teams, functions and organisations,” said Helen Brophy, Director, UCD Executive Education. “In order to win in competitive markets, executives need to expand their business intelligence, collaborate cross-culturally and align their people with common missions and values that lead to superior long-term performance.”
