Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Aberdeen Business School has always been at the forefront in responding to this growing need for Continuing Professional Development (CPD). The School offers a variety of ways of studying (part-time, open and online) which help to meet the variety of CPD needs of those who are already in employment.
Change is continual and increasingly impacts on the working environment, presenting ever-developing challenges for managers and employees alike. With the massive shifts in work practices over recent years there is an increasing demand for people to keep their knowledge and skills current. Whether in the new technologies, media and communication or in the business and legal fields, all skills need to be learned.
To help people to continually keep their knowledge and abilities current there has been a huge rise in demand for courses delivering lifelong learning to develop this expertise alongside the need for flexibility of study which allows people to incorporate it into their working lives. With this in mind, our regular programme of short courses is open to professionals from any organisation.
The Securing Your Business: protect and prepare is a two-day course which has been developed in partnership with Grampian Police. It is aimed at those who have the responsibility for contingency planning, co-ordination and response in relation to security threats to an organisation.
All courses on our Postgraduate Programme are modular. Most of these modules can be taken on a free-standing basis and may contribute to your own Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Since these modules form part of an assessed learning programme they provide you with an accredited qualification as well as giving you up-to-date knowledge in the subject area of your choice.
