Why the 20Twenty Business Growth & Leadership course?

Where will your business be in 2020?
The programme begins with the here and now, and asks a fundamental question, what type of leader/manager are you? Secondly, where do you want to be in four years’ time?

As leaders you need to be ‘one step ahead’ and you need to be ‘leading the way’ that will enable you to take the risks, adapt to change and become role models for those who wish to follow. Our programme will develop your further as a leader/manager within a ten month framework.

Up to 60% Subsidised
The programme benefits from an EU subsidy of up to 60% meaning that the costs are much lower than many other leadership & management qualifications. You can also use the qualification to progress to an Executive MBA at Cardiff Metropolitan University with a partial fee waiver.

Work on Real Work-Based Issues – Improve Your Business/Department
The 20Twenty course is unique in that it involves working directly on your business or department while studying. You will have the opportunity to complete a ‘Strategic Growth Project’ that transfers your learning from the classroom to the workplace, by selecting a real work-based issue and providing recommendations for business growth or departmental improvements. Those who have completed the programme have achieved an average of 10-30% business growth over a 10 month period. One company had an increase of 300%. As you develop a unique set of business and people skills, we will challenge you to think about the differences you can make to your organisation or company.

Our programme focuses on real issues and the content continues to be reviewed by past delegates through focus groups to ensure it remains relevant and immediately applicable in the workplace to achieve maximum impact. This is one of the reasons why our programme is such a success and as a result it continues to be a flagship product offered by Cardiff Metropolitan University.
