Built around a core five days of residential learning, the Management Development Program requires some online pre-work and assessment to identify areas of strength and agreed development focus. This forms the basis of their specific development during the program.
During the residential phase, participants create an action plan based on their learning, for implementation back at their workplace. The plan is presented to their program peers and faculty.
After the five residential days there are follow-up virtual workshops and progress reviews.
On successful post-program completion, participants will receive a final Certificate of Application.
Participants have access to the Virtual Ashridge learning platform throughout the program.
