The Centre for General Management Development: knowledge into action
The Centre for General Management Development at Cranfield delivers practical executive education that helps managers progress and businesses flourish.
Across four decades, more than ten thousand managers from over 70 countries have chosen our general management programmes to develop their leadership effectiveness and drive their businesses forward.
"These flagship programmes are very practical and personalised to each individual in their own business context."
David Butcher, Director, Centre of General Management Development
is to support managers at the key transition points in their careers, giving them a clear understanding of how to develop and use their personal capabilities to add greater value to their organisation.
Managers must step outside their businesses to be able to put new insight and impetus back in. We help them do that by offering a longterm and personal relationship, something that is unique to Cranfield’s general management programmes.
We have four different programmes, each designed to fit with the stage you are at in your career.
For senior executives who want to make the greatest possible impact as strategic leaders
For high potential managers preparing for business leadership roles
For seniors managers needing a general management perspective to be more effective
For young managers with a promising managerial career ahead
