The Business Management post-graduate certificate is an eight-month program that provides a unique opportunity for professionals who want to advance their careers through the development of leadership and management knowledge and skills. In separate rankings by the Financial Times (FT), our Executive MBA (EMBA) programme was the highest-ranked new entrant in 10th position among Asian institutions, and 36th globally this year, while our Masters of Science in Wealth Management programme (MWM) was ranked 1st in Asia and 3rd globally.
Topics include the financing of new ventures; working capital and cash flow management; financial statement and ratio analysis; financing the ongoing business and future growth; financial structure and leverage; valuation methods; and the importance of financial management controls.
In particular, the aim is to enable learners to understand the management functions of planning, organising, leading and control, thus preparing them to be employable managers, workers or entrepreneurs and contributors to society and the business community.
Purpose: The purpose of this module, in the broader context of the Diploma in Management, is to enable the student to explain and apply the principles of management with specific focus on organising and controlling management functions, information management and communication, leadership and motivation theories.
The nature and degree of competition in an industry hinge on five forces: the threat of new entrants, bargaining power of suppliers, bargaining power of customers, the threat of substitute products or services, and the jockeying among current contestants.
