To progress in your career, it is usually necessary to take on some sort of management role, whether it be for a small team, or an entire department. However, management skills do not necessarily come naturally to everyone, so a short course in management or a preparation for a supervisory role is often beneficial.

While management training can be done in-house, the right training course can provide a much more detailed induction into the role with various institutions offering courses. These management training courses also help re-energize existing management, thus improving motivation, focus as well as decision-making processes.

There is a wide range of training centers and universities across the UAE, each varying in course content, qualifications, course duration, and cost. The most flexible are online courses offered by internationally recognized universities such as University of Phoenix and Open University, but with a major price tag.

University of Wollongong offers Certificates of Proficiency in Business Management and Administration, and Human Resource Management.

Other training institutions have specific industry focuses such as Meirc Training & Consulting with courses in management and progression within the HR industry. Spearhead Training and HNI Training and Coaching have a different range of leadership and management courses.

Whichever course you choose, make sure the course content suits your needs; otherwise, it would be a waste of time and money.

• Ensure that the course syllabus meets your needs
• University of Phoenix offers online management courses
• Spearhead Training has many leadership courses
