CENTRE FOR EXECUTIVE DEVELOPMENT
At Aston Business School’s Centre for Executive Development our vision and commitment is to be a major executive development partner of choice, equipping and inspiring leaders to think clearly, be confident and take innovative action.
By engaging with us for the development of your executives, you benefit from our experience - uniquely honed from our position at the heart of the second largest and most diverse city in the UK - of empowering individuals with the knowledge and confidence to continuously make a positive impact, for themselves, their organisation and their industry, not just for today, but for a long time into the future.
Aston Business School has a track record of successfully devising and delivering executive development programmes. Our peer-tested fresh insights spring from what the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) judged to be ‘world leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’ research, and our standing as one of the top 1% of business schools in the world, and one of a very few to have triple accreditation from EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB.
Tailoring our delivery to a post experience and often a post-MBA market, we create customised accredited and non-accredited programmes for your executives, packaging existing and new management knowledge to address your organisation’s specific business needs.
