The Higher Certificate in Management is an entry level management programme that successfully develops the skills of young potential managers, supervisors, and team leaders.
Students that enrol on this programme are exposed to complex business environments and are challenged to think differently through self-assessment and reflection. Through examining a range of management concepts, students discover winning techniques that improve their ability to manage in an ever changing world. The most relevant management subjects have been weaved together to form a solid educational foundation for the emerging manager.
FPD's approach is to combine excellent theory and personal experience which results in a management programme that is inspiring and practical.
