Understand the foundations of management and leadership
This online course will provide an introduction to the foundation skills and knowledge you need when becoming a manager.
It has been developed by The Open University Business School – a pioneering institution that is triple accredited by AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB – and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) – the leading authority on management and leadership in the UK.
As such, it will give you the opportunity to learn from both academic experts and experienced practitioners, who have achieved the CMI’s prestigious Chartered Manager status.
The course is designed for new or aspiring managers, or experienced managers with few or no formal qualifications.
It will enable you to demonstrate your continuous professional development and go on to achieve a CMI Level 5 Award as part of the Management and Leadership, Essentials program.
If you also complete and pass the Management and Leadership, Personal Development program, you’ll earn another CMI Level 5 Award. Together, these two awards will give you a CMI Level 5 Certificate in Management and Leadership – the next step to Chartered Manager status.
Please note, the deadline for registration on the CMI final assessment courses is 31 August 2020.
completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
A comprehensive course with many fundamental knowledge about management, therefore it's good for people without formal degree in management but currently working as managers. There are many theories with examples and also practices, complete with templates to apply the knowledge on the current workplace.
I have only done the first week, but I am really enjoying the material and the format of the course. Very good for a self-starter, not sure how people would go if they were told they "had" to complete the course.
