Master of Executive Management

General

Program Description

The HELP Master of Executive Management (MEM), first offered in 2011, aspires to instill junior executives and middle managers with the knowledge, skills, and behaviour for advancement to senior and higher management roles, especially in the arena of corporate and business strategy, innovation, leadership, and governance.

These are among the very critical issues that today challenge ambitious and emerging, as well as endangered organizations in their bid for business success and corporate growth amidst ever-changing, ever-threatening and ever-opportunistic global developments.

With a specialist curriculum, the MEM pioneers new learning modules such as Cultural Intelligence, Negotiation, Conflict Resolution, Statistics and Knowledge Management examining areas not specifically addressed in many traditional management programmes but also draws on the relevance of selected HELP MBA subjects to provide candidates with a comprehensive exposure to important disciplines in general management.

The MEM is supported with an academically and professionally qualified faculty compellingly familiar with corporate and industry thought and practice.
