Essential skills for strategy formulation and implementation
A unique feature of the Singapore Executive MBA program is the incorporation of the Strategic Leadership Development (SLD) sequence.
The SLD is a trio of leadership-oriented modules that centers on integrating the essential skills and disciplinary knowledge required for success in senior-level management.
Designed in collaboration with the UB School of Management's Center for International Leadership, the SLD sequence focuses on determining overall strategic direction (strategy formulation) and creating organizational arrangements to pursue it (strategy implementation).
- Theory and Practice of Negotiations: focuses on how to effectively manage both informal and formal relationships with colleagues, superiors, customers and suppliers, in order to create value and advance your interests in those relationships.
- Leadership and Management of Change: hones senior-level skills to effectively lead global organizations with an emphasis on effective management during periods of organizational change. It aims to help leaders execute strategy within the context of a vision for the future of the organization.
- Strategic Management: This two-module course consists of Strategic Management I and Strategic Management II: The EMBA Project. It enables students to develop the cognitive and analytic skills to exploit market opportunities and set the overall strategic direction of the organization. Through the capstone project, students gain the practical experience of developing a comprehensive strategic plan, in collaboration with expert faculty and experienced classmates, that they can take back to their organizations.
