Graduate Apprenticeships: Business Management webinar

Posted: 13th August 2020
Find out how our Business Management GA degree programme builds the management and business skills necessary in a professional organisation.

About this Event

As the modern business world becomes increasingly dynamic, understanding the way businesses and organisations operate and how they make key decisions, is crucial.

In our Business Management GA programme our objective is to develop the general management and business knowledge and skills of participants in the context of contemporary private and public sector organisations, large and small.

Employees examine organisations, understand workings and relate theories to actual business practices. Throughout the programme we develop the management and business skills necessary for success in a professional organisation.

In the webinar you’ll hear from David C. Steinberg Ph.D., Director of EBS Graduate Apprenticeships programmes. Specifically, you’ll learn about:

  • The Edinburgh Business School
  • The EBS GA faculty
  • The EBS Graduate Apprentice
  • Programme structure
  • The characteristics of a successful Heriot-Watt GA candidate
  • The critical partnership between the graduate apprentice student, employer mentor, and university tutor
  • The Heriot-Watt support structures available to GA students

The webinar consists of a 30 minute presentation followed by a Q&A.
