Management Advancement Programme
MAP has grown significantly over the past few years in terms of student numbers, revenue and popularity. It has established itself as one of the most sought-after programmes on the WBS campus. For this, we thank the staff who work on the programme, as well as those members of the community, corporate world and public service who find value in it. In 2011, MAP marked its 100th intake since the inaugural MAP 1 started in 1979, thus setting a solid reputation for itself over the years. There is not a corner in the world where you will not bump into one of our alumni. In addition, there are countless other corporate MAPs run off campus either as corporate/in-house or public programmes in a number of provinces.
The Management Advancement Programme (MAP) is designed to assist managers in developing a well-rounded approach to managing a department or a business unit. The modules covered in the programme are human resources, economics, operations management, finance and accounting, strategy and marketing. The MAP programme has been run by the business school for over 25 years and has a good reputation among employers. The programme is aimed at middle managers who want to fast-track their careers. Participants who successfully complete the programme will receive a certificate of competence.
The Management Advancement Programme (MAP) is a part-time course designed to assist managers whose experience and primary activities have been in a specialised functional area. The objective is to give managers broad exposure to the fundamental nature of the management process and human behaviour within organisations.
