A new course aimed at improving and enhancing teaching excellence in management is being offered at a new learning centre in the Surrey Business School (SBS), based at the University of Surrey.

The SBS launched the first Centre for Management Learning (CML) on 23 February, with the mission of being the leading management competency centre in the UK.

The CML aims to improve and enhance teaching excellence in management through industry-informed curriculum design, new teaching practices, staff development and pedagogic research and events.

Dr Christine Rivers, Co-Director Centre for Management Learning and Programme Director PG Cert in Management Learning, said:

“Next January we look forward to offering this new course, which is the first credit-bearing post graduate certificate in Management Learning, which qualifies practitioners to lead and teach modules in their subject in any business school.

“The new course will also help practitioners with work experience in any business context, and will have the advantage of a personal learning advisor for each student. The advantages are those who complete the course will be able to teach their own subjects in business schools, or run their own business of running workshops.

“We believe that since February, the CML has been a response to a business world in constant flux and shaken by economic, political, technological and societal events and changes around us.

“The business world needs flexible and reflective managers and leaders with versatile skills who can effectively deal with the challenges and changes ahead – and our certificate course is part of a solution to this.

“This is why the centre is unique in supporting and practicing teaching and learning excellence; and academics and people from the industry across the UK will join us on a new journey that transforms the way we teach our leaders of the future.

“We look forward to welcoming our first course attendees to this worthwhile course next year, and know it will be well attended and enjoyable.”
