Executive Education Symposium:
Degree Apprenticeships and their Impact on Executive Education
As a major area of recent growth, degree apprenticeships are having a considerable impact upon executive education and its future delivery.
This symposium will examine the array of organisational structures business schools are adopting to provide both degree apprenticeships and executive education, and how this is supported by the wider institution. Case studies will explore:
- Restructuring departments and professional services to streamline executive education and degree apprenticeship operations and delivery
- Dealing with rapid growth in degree apprenticeships provision, and managing the opportunities and challenges on other executive education provision
- Delivering the MBA, MA, degree apprenticeships and executive education through one department
- The pros and cons of segregating or integrating degree apprenticeships and executive education.
Participants will enhance their understanding of the range of opportunities and challenges of degree apprenticeships for executive education, both currently and in the longer term. This will include analysis of the implications for the skills, competencies and resources needed in teams for the successful delivery of both executive education and degree apprenticeships.
