COURSE DURATION: Two (2) years | Rolling Intakes: January, May and September
The philosophy of the programme is to provide leadership in managing technology and operations in a fast-changing environment. By so doing, society is inspired to become more efficient, more open to innovations and positive change. The programme regard technology as an asset, not a disruption.
The 4th industrial revolution has thrust technology and operations at the heart of the organization. The investment in technology and its consequences demands that modern leaders at both the corporate and public sector are informed of operations and how technology has become part of our lives. Stakeholders’ forum involving HR managers and other thought suggests there is a shortage in the market for this cadre of experts. The rise of global firms riding on technology demands such experts too.
At the end of this programme, the learner should be able to: -
- Identify key operations in firms across different sectors;
- Evaluate the effectiveness of technology used in operations in different sectors;
- Recommend the best technology in terms of efficiency, cost-effectiveness and agility;
- Apply the principles of operations and technology in new contexts;
- Demonstrate how operations and technology contribute to the growth of firms and the economy in general.
