Programme Overview

For over fifty years, managers from the private and public sectors across the world have accelerated their career progression with the support of Ashridge's Advanced Management Programme (AMP):

  • The AMP's modular design is flexible which allows you to schedule the 16 - 25 days' participation to fit your diary and you have up to two years to complete your AMP.
  • It is also personal: meaning that you can choose modules in areas where you need most development with the support of your Programme Coach
  • You also have access to the programme's Virtual Learning Portal for the duration of your programme participation and for 12 months after that.

Please call our Programme Advisors for an informal chat about which development path might work best for you.

Building your Advanced Management Programme

The Advanced Management Programme (AMP) is delivered in a multi-modular format, offering you the opportunity to undertake substantial personal development that can be fitted to your personal needs and time available. This makes the AMP more relevant than ever for time pressed managers looking to raise their all-round performance and accelerate their progression.

Choose your focus - you may select from a range of modules depending on which areas you want to develop including at least one module from each of the four competency areas in the diagram below.

Choose your dates - you can easily fit the programme into your diary with a wide selection of dates for our easy-to-schedule short modules.

Choose your pace - we understand that work pressures may kick in, so you have up to two years to complete the programme.
