Leadership and Management

Leadership and management is a critical success factor in every organization because of its involvement with setting the direction of the organization, with initiating action and with developing and preparing the organization for attaining organizational goals and objectives. Leadership and management is more than an organizational role, it is a true profession. Therefore, it is worthwhile for organizations and individuals to invest in leadership and management development at all levels in the organization.

MSM executive education expertise is in leadership and management is closely related to our expertise in teaching degree programs such as Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master in Management (MM). It covers both general management subjects such as strategic planning, performance management and organizational change and functional management topics such as financial management, accounting and marketing. From MSM's experience in capacity building we have extensive experience in project management for capacity development (4DEV).
