The International Masters in Practicing Management (IMPM) is a real alternative to the mainstream of MBAs. It is designed for highly experienced managers and entrepreneurs, enabling them to refine their leadership skills and make a lasting impact on their organisation. Its design and processes were inspired by the lifelong study of managerial practice by Professor Henry Mintzberg, the Canadian management guru, who has taught on the IMPM since its foundation.
The programme focuses on five modules designed around managerial mind sets rather than functional silos. With each module lasting approximately ten days, and delivered in a different country (England, Canada, India, China and Brazil), the MA manages to be both truly international and to fit perfectly with the world of work.
Participants move between concept based training and their real life experiences, and also benefit from peer to peer learning, with observation, visits, and feedback.
Over 50 leading companies and organisations from around the world have sent staff to participate.
