|Field of Study:||Office Management and Supervision
|Description:||Management Skills is a three-part program designed to improve managerial effectiveness through specific skills training. It will appeal to supervisors, administrators, project leaders, and department heads in business, industry, public and not-for-profit sectors. The 12-day program is offered in three four-day modules approximately one month apart. This approach allows participants to integrate new skills and learning on-the-job, then return to class for reinforcement, review, and additional new material. The format includes videos, self-scoring inventories, role plays, case studies, short lectures, and structured exercises to provide a stimulating adult learning experience.
Participants who successfully complete all three parts of the program will receive a certificate from Vancouver Island University. In addition, participants receive two credits per part towards certificate, diploma and degree programs at VIU. Three take-home assignments demonstrating application of skills and knowledge to the work situation must be completed.
