Management, business and presentation skills

Short, intensive and highly practical courses delivered in Oxford or in-company, and giving individuals and organisations the competitive advantage.

For professionals in management, research and technical roles, these courses are particularly suited to people working in science, medicine, engineering, electronics, information technology and other hi-tech fields.

The programmes focus upon effective techniques and essential skills that can be translated into practice, enhancing individual and organisational performance. They are delivered by internationally-acclaimed presenters from the University of Oxford and industry. In addition to essential professional updating, participants benefit from valuable networking opportunities.

These one-day intensive business and management skills courses have been developed by representatives from industry together with academics from the University of Oxford's prestigious Saïd Business School and include change, knowledge, and project management and knowledge for technology commercialisation.

Also suitable for groups as bespoke courses in-house or in Oxford.
