New program for senior executives to focus on risk management, sustainability

Birmingham's Aston Business School has announced the launch of a brand new executive MBA program, to start in January 2011.

The program, which is 27 months long, will focus on aspects like sustainability and innovation - aspects identified by a recent report by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) as important and often neglected in times of recession.

The new EMBA will also introduce a new program module - termed "CONNECT" by Aston - which, according to the school's website, "allows candidates to map out future career progression and identify personal skills (negotiation and communication skills, time management, problem solving etc) that need to be developed."

For the new EMBA, Aston will require that candidates have at least five years of executive work experience.

For more information, please see Aston's website.
