Course content

Manufacturing is changing. To increase productivity, companies have to be endlessly adaptable.

This programme is designed for manufacturers of all sizes, in all sectors. It's about improving processes – not just on the production side, but in accounting, finance, marketing and sales. It's about streamlining supply chains, identifying new markets and understanding customers better.

But that's not all.

Because we want this to be a truly inspirational experience, we’re going to show you what the future looks like. On two week-long field trips, you’ll see for yourself how innovation is transforming manufacturing businesses in developed economies such as the UK or Germany and in emerging markets such as India.

The modules are directly relevant, whatever your company makes. And the innovative timetable means you can keep working while you study, constantly bringing fresh insight back into the business. This is no box-ticking exercise. This is executive education with purpose and drive.
