What is GOLD?

On GOLD, you learn how to create, implement and review strategy in your own and other businesses by experiencing ‘being’ a Non-Executive Director (NED) in other organisations and ‘having’ a NED in your own company. GOLD focuses on business planning, strategic leadership, change management, decision making processes and culture change. You will work with a small group of like-minded peers. You are supported to work in each other’s organisations through a range of simulated board meetings and workshops, and develop an annual action plan linking your vision with your day-to-day activities.

Subsequently, delegates can build on their Postgraduate Certificate to have their learning on GOLD accredited and receive a Postgraduate Diploma (Leading Business) from the University of Gloucestershire which can form the basis for our MBA (Leading Business).
