Executive Education (2018)

Executive Education offers a range of highly regarded executive and corporate development programmes. These programmes are designed to meet the individual development needs of working managers along with the specific needs of corporate organisations and industry sectors. They are applied programmes that rely on participants bringing and sharing their own experience in the classroom. Executive programmes are generally offered on a 'cohort' basis where a group of participants maintains a collaborative learning process throughout the prescribed course of study. Therefore, enrolment into individual papers is often not possible. In most cases it is not possible to cross-credit papers from these applied postgraduate programmes to or from undergraduate or graduate qualifications. All Executive Education papers are internally assessed.

Note: Not all papers are taught in any one year. All candidates should discuss their intended programme with Executive Education before enrolling. Further information on these programmes can be obtained by contacting Executive Education at the Waikato Management School, phone +64 7 838 4198 or email exceed@waikato.ac.nz.
