Program Description

PGG - General Management Program, just like PAGE - Advanced Management Program for Executives, provides general training in Company Management. It is aimed at managers who are generally younger or are connected to smaller companies.

The program is divided into a first more general part, which covers the key areas in Management, and a second part dedicated to modules which aim to enhance knowledge, allowing specialization in General Management, Marketing or Finance.

PGG is also unique in terms of its format, since it has been designed using a training model which is totally compatible with the carrying on of a full-time professional activity. Classes are held fortnightly on Saturday mornings and an online platform is also used.

The program requires participants to attend eight modules, each lasting one month, and two forums, always using methods which facilitate time management and online learning.
