In-Company Programmes

Kingston Business School and Kingston Law School are both leading suppliers of undergraduate and postgraduate education, plus we have a established history of providing innovative and high quality courses direct to corporate clients. Examples of the content we have included in courses are:

  • Innovation
  • Sustainability
  • Finance
  • Employment Law
  • Leadership and Management
  • Finance for non Financial Managers

If you have a group of interested employees then we can help to build a bespoke programme of study across all our business and law specialisms. These courses are tailored to suit your company's specific needs or to address a certain objective.


Flexibility to meet your needs

All our programmes can be fully tailored to meet your needs, including:

  • Choice of venue - delivery either at your company offices, onsite at Kingston University, or at a selected corporate venue.
  • Number and length of course sessions can be flexible to suit your staff. For example rather than a full day programme you may find it easier to run the content over 3 or 4 smaller workshop sessions.
  • Sessions can be packaged in different ways, for instance 1 afternoon a week for 10 weeks; one day a week for 5 weeks, or across evenings and weekends.
  • Programmes can be delivered specifically to management within the company, or to certain departments.
  • Learning can be formally assessed via assignments and accredited against our masters programmes.

All executive programmes are delivered using such techniques as interactive workshops, relevant case studies and a combination of group and individual work. Some sessions use creative role play, an approach derived from theatre.

Participants are called upon to challenge traditional approaches and develop new ways of thinking. Self-assessment and 360-degree assessment are an essential part of the sessions on developing personal skills. Participants will be asked to bring live business problems to the sessions to work on. The focus throughout is on learning that can be directly translated into practice.

Executive Programme

Business Breakfast - Leading global teams

Tuesday 11 November.
Time: 8:00am – 10:00am. Breakfast included.
Venue: Business School, Kingston Hill
Price: Free but booking is essential

Book now.

Do you manage staff across borders, or deal with multiple suppliers overseas?

The globalisation of business brings new challenges that both face-to-face and virtual teams need to address. These include an increase in the number of internal and external stakeholders to manage; the need to interact across more and different types of boundaries; and an increasing necessity to integrate local responsiveness and global coordination.

To successfully lead teams within such a high level of complexity requires a strong self, and relationship and perception management competencies developed through experiences of boundary spanning, blending and bridge making.

At this breakfast event, you will be introduced to these competencies and roles in a short talk. You will then spend the remainder of the session exploring these ideas experientially and there will also be time for networking.

Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution which can eliminate the need to go to court. It aims to assist two parties who are in disagreement to reach a mutually acceptable solution. The process is more time efficient and cost effective than other forms of dispute resolution such as litigation or arbitration and it provides parties with a safe non-threatening environment in which the issues concerned can be openly discussed.

This course provides basic techniques needed to mediate disputes. The training focuses on the skills used by mediators when helping parties in a dispute. These skills include:

•    handling emotionally charged situations;
•    problem solving, active listening; and
•    effective questioning.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
