The South African Business environment is one that is truly dynamic. Nowadays, over and above required business skills, Business Owners, Professionals, Entrepreneurs and Lone-preneurs need to build resilience and constantly adapt themselves to remain relevant in an ever-volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world of business. However, most don’t have either the time, the money or both to do a full MBA. To solve this problem, FPD has partnered with the Alliance Manchester Business School, who is one of the world’s leading business and management education institutions globally.

The Alliance Manchester Business School Advanced Management Programme (AMBS AMP) is an internationally certified, intensive management development programme, tailor-made for the needs of middle and senior-level managers. This course has been specifically customized for the South African environment and is designed to take into account the time constraints of professionals who work full-time. By partnering with the Alliance Manchester Business School, the FPD Business School has given South African professionals access to an International Qualification, solving three major problems:

  • Affordability - It is one of the most affordable International Advanced Management Programmes in South Africa
  • Accessibility - It is locally organized and in distance learning mode, which means that it empowers students who cannot access traditional tertiary institutions to access quality education. In addition, there is no need to go to Manchester to find a world-class internationally recognized programme, we have brought it to you.
  • Time – Attend 4 blocks of 3 days each over a 12-month period to ensure that your main focus remains your business objectives.
