G-ACUA Programme
Real Time Design in Work-based Learning and Development








Corporate universities are overtaking academic universities worldwide, so knowing about world class best practice and the dynamic role of the corporate university is a must-have competence for managers.  Wherever you are in the world you can discover the essential strategic design and management disciplines for successful corporate university management.


Real Time Design in Work-based Learning and Development is an effective vehicle providing:

  • A programme that blends with your work activities

  • An 8-week curriculum for competitive capability and capacity development, linked directly to the organisation's strategic direction

  • A programme that builds the quality and value of your operational development plans

  • Focused outcomes with high return on investment potential

  • A transformational management toolkit for developing a corporate university, from exploration and design through to implementation

  • A G-ACUA-accredited Management Award, achieving business results through learning
