Cambridge Executive Education, the executive education arm at Judge Business School in the UK has announced a further partnership - with the Louis Group, a private property, financial services and technology group.
The two will deliver the Louis Group Business Academy in the UK, beginning in January 2009.
The UK-based business academy will offer participants a range of topics to help them succeed in entrepreneurial careers, such as general management, marketing, strategy and finance. Faculty from Judge and individuals from the Louis Group will deliver the programme, both at Louis Group’s purpose-built offices in the UK and from Cambridge University.
The Louis Group Business Academy was established in 2003 with the objective of teaching participants “the secrets of building a sustainable business while promoting the virtues of stewardship, honesty and integrity”.
It offers business owners suggestions as to how they can manage their business effectively, survive in difficult business climates and how they can take advantage of opportunities when they arise. The academy already collaborates with the University of Stellenbosch Business School in South Africa and over the past five years more than 600 executives have taken part in its programme.
Larry Abeln, chief executive officer at Cambridge Executive Education, says the partnership will raise awareness of leadership and management in the global economy.
“The programme will provide participants the opportunity to reflect on the impact these challenges will have for current approaches to business and broader trends in society, giving them the knowledge base to advance entrepreneurial careers,” says Mr Abeln.
Cambridge Executive Education recently announced it would deliver a short course with the University of Hong Kong.
