Focusing on three key elements of general management: business drivers, management skills, as well as corporate culture, this programme guides students to analyze the key challenges that senior executives would face when expanding their enterprise globally or regionally, and equip them with essential tools for success in senior management.


This programme is for C-level executives from various industries. 


The programme aims to provide systematic and professional trainings to the senior management of an organization. Through drawing on overseas experience in business growth and expansion strategies, brand management and personnel management, the students would be able to maximize returns on the enterprise resources, balance the risks involved and take into account the corporate social responsibility and business ethics and ultimately the operations and management of an organization at international level would be developed.

  • Critically analyse both the internal and external environments for the organisation, and establish strategies in line with the organisational needs of international development;
  • Through drawing on experience in global operations, establish appropriate measures for all major areas of an organisation to enhance returns on its local or multinational business;
  •  Apply risk management concepts related to international operations, and establish proposals to foster the healthy development of organisations;
