Development Programmes

Whether your focus is on teaching, research, business engagement, executive education, or the leadership of business schools, the Charted ABS provides opportunities that will help you develop strategy, gain confidence, build strong networks with colleagues from different institutions, and share excellent practices to enhance your personal effectiveness and the reputation of your business school.

Our Development Programmes are co-designed with expert colleagues and participants. We aim to build capacity in the business school community to encourage knowledge sharing and insights and to support you professionally and personally in your busy schedule. UK business schools are working in a more competitive global environment with major disruptions in business models, funding, technology, and demands for life-long learning and innovation for growth.

We will optimise your time to reflect on your business school’s strategy through stimulating dialogue with peers and collaborate with expert facilitators about your experiences. We draw on our latest reports, data analysis, so that you return to work confident and re-energised with practical action plans, useful tools and invaluable contacts.
