About the course

The New Manager course at the UCT GSB is designed to equip first-time managers, or experienced managers wanting an update, with practical managerial skills and business acumen that can be implemented immediately in the workplace.

The course runs once a year in Cape Town as a two-week course, and once a year in Johannesburg at the UCT GSB training facility in Sandton in a modular format.

LEARN THE LANGUAGE OF LEADERSHIP

The course covers core business fundamentals and provides the self-knowledge and personal growth essential for building the leadership capability to manage, lead and motivate a team with confidence. One of the fundamentals of the course is to enable managers to "speak the language of leadership." A post-course assignment is designed to help delegates entrench what they learn by applying that in the workplace, providing an opportunity to add value back to their organisations.

What will I Gain from this Course?

Students on The New Manager course will gain:

  • Core business skills in strategy, marketing, finance, operations, and the management of complex projects
  • The basics of good business communication
  • Practical skills to develop, manage and motivate a team
  • Self-knowledge, personal growth and personal mastery
  • Insight and experience through networking with fellow delegates from diverse industries
  • Added value for your organisation – a post-course assignment helps you apply what you’ve learned in the workplace
