About the course
Become a better decision-maker and manager. Stretch your thinking and increase your confidence.
Designed to broaden your business perspective and skills, the Cambridge General Management Programme (GMP) is an intense two-week learning experience. You will be immersed in an environment that will inspire and challenge you, leaving you ready to take the next step in your career. We offer a practical and skills-based approach which recognises that time is short and expectations are high.
You will fast-track your grasp of the core disciplines in management alongside more topical subjects. Knowing how these fundamentals interact builds a more strategic mindset, better problem-solving and decision-making. This all-round management education is crucial to improving as a manager and emerging as a leader.
The programme features a leadership and coaching module, designed to provide you with an understanding of what leadership means, and what ‘effective leadership’ looks like. This module will help you understand different leadership styles and with the support of a coach, hone the leadership traits that are most important to you as a leader.
The first week of the programme covers the more technical aspects of business that would typically be covered in a good MBA curriculum – strategy, operations, finance, accounting, marketing and economics. The second half of the programme explores the more topical and skill-based aspects of management, which may include the power of persuasion, decision making using data, leadership, data analytics, business sustainability macroeconomics and globalisation.
Over the course of the programme, you will discuss, debate and gain insight from Cambridge academic faculty and an international and diverse peer group. We take a multidisciplinary approach to learning; creating an engaging two weeks where you will acquire new skills to take your career to the next level.
The Cambridge General Management Programme will help you:

- Acquire the skills and the qualification to enable a career shift; whether industry, sector, company, or your own business.
