UQ Business School to work with emerging leaders

1 Mar 2010
UQ Business School will work with the Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA) to deliver an education program for emerging business leaders. UQ Business School is the Queensland university partner for the Copland Program - which has been operating in Melbourne and Sydney for several years - and is the only partner in Australia to offer a program that earns credit towards a postgraduate degree qualification. Professor Tim Brailsford of UQ Business School said the aim of the program was to prepare emerging leaders to make good decisions. "The Copland Program has an important role to play in helping talented people prepare effectively for senior management opportunities," he said. "As well as addressing some of the key issues facing senior managers today, the program also delivers academic credit towards a postgraduate qualification." Professor Brailsford said the partnership was an exciting development in UQ Business School's long relationship with CEDA. The Copland Program addresses senior management topics including: Building partnerships with government and industry Corporate sustainability Innovation leadership Business ethics Working with government and key stakeholders. CEDA is an independent, not for profit body formed in 1960 that aims to inform, influence, and raise the standard of discussion and research about the issues shaping Australia's economic and social development.
