Leadership and Management Training

Training programmes that allow you to decide how, what and when your managers study

The University of Wolverhampton Business School’s portfolio of training programmes put you in control of your organisation’s development. Combining flexibility with nationally recognised packages of study, our programmes range from customised short courses, to professional programmes and University qualifications.

The size, scope and content of professional programmes can be matched to your organisational needs, whilst providing a progressive framework of learning that allows individuals to develop their management skills over time and in line with their role and experience.

Our leadership and management programmes are delivered by innovative experts and are underpinned by world-leading research and cutting-edge management theories. Blended learning techniques are also adopted to create a hybrid teaching methodology. This comprises traditional classroom-based learning, online technologies and opportunities to apply theory in the workplace, via strategic, work-related projects.
