Helping managers to grow: Managers Accelerated Progression Programme (MAP) 


At the heart of successful organisations lie trained, effective managers who honed their skills through one of the best management courses in South Africa. Managers, whose intelligence, business acumen, continual learning and application to their work build better careers, better businesses and, ultimately, establish the foundations for a strong economy and the nation’s progress.  This foundational and hugely supportive programme will build confidence and skills.

What are the benefits of the Henley Business School management courses in South Africa?

Often people have industry experience but feel that they lack some of the building blocks of business or management knowledge needed to go further in their careers. MAP provides these foundations with focus on Care, Creativity and a Community of practice for managers. It is a carefully designed, practical programme which helps managers to raise their game by structuring their thinking and learning new business disciplines.  

MAP programmes at Henley Business School provides a blend of academic and practical knowledge and progressive learning design. Experienced teachers and facilitators are committed to the development of managers and provide a dedicated support structure. 

Who can apply for the MAP management course?

MAP+ is for motivated individuals with experience in managing people, projects or processes, whether in the private, public or NGO sectors, or entrepreneurs. Previous participants have ranged from new managers to company directors and it will teach you:

  • Foundations of management and learning
  • Systems thinking
  • Mastering value / finance
  • Operations and logistics
  • Innovation and marketing

Duration, structure and dates of our MAP management course

MAP+ lasts 6 months, part time.  Total attendance is 16 days split over 5 contact blocks.

You will practise your learning immediately within your organisation, applying it and reflecting on your growth. In addition, you will be given a manageable team project, which requires you to do real good for real people in real time, typically working with an NGO. We will teach you action learning methods – a powerful way to learn while doing. Apart from the social contribution and societal insight this project brings, it allows you to practise and develop your new knowledge and skills.
