General Management Program

Improve the way you manage day-to-day business and other core work functions with our General Management Program.

Combining business theory and practice, we give you a foundational understanding of supervising others, strategy, finance and marketing, and how they work together to create a successful organisation.

Our program is a great opportunity to broaden your executive skills and perspectives, while building the confidence needed to lead across different organisational functions. 


"The main attraction was the leadership development and understanding the functions of leadership. The program came at a critical junction for me – understanding how I could apply governance principles to a statutory authority that operates within a government structure. I learnt a lot about patience, fortitude and clarity from the program."

Helen Kapalos
Chairperson | Victorian Multicultural Commission
Victoria, Australia

Brandon Lee
Presenter | Strategy

Brandon’s research focuses on the emergence and evolution of new markets and industries. He examines firm-level strategies and broader market-level competitive dynamics and institutions and their interrelationships. He has a particular interest in those market niches that arise due to opportunities created by the negative environmental and social externalities associated with conventional means of production. Industry niches such as organic food, renewable energy technologies and green building are all sources of innovation and social change that can reshape consumer preferences and consumption patterns, reframe marketing and distribution, and alter how goods and services are produced.
