Brathay delivers development programme for MBS students

Brathay has announced it is working with Manchester Business School (MBS) to deliver a personal and professional development programme for its students.

The programme is designed to prepare the students and give them experience of working in challenging environments as well as supporting the academic elements of its MBA programme.

Brathay is delivering a bespoke 2.5 day residential programme at its training facility on the shores of the Lake Windermere in the Lake District that ensures that each student draws maximum benefit from the diverse make-up of the programme and provides them with tools and behaviours which will prepare them for working as part of a multicultural team.

Susan Moger, Associate Director of Management Development at Manchester Business School says Brathay's courses are an essential part of our MBA programme "We selected Brathay because of their proven expertise in creating and delivering team development programmes. Using a blend of theoretical methodology and practical activities students are able to better understand the dynamics of their new team, and learn how to maximise the power of combining their skills and talents.

"Many of the career paths which the students will take once they leave MBS will involve working in a variety of countries. This requires them to communicate effectively both verbally and non-verbally in order to manage people from many cultures. Brathay's programme provides an environment where the students are able to develop these new skills."

Godfrey Owen, Deputy CEO at Brathay explains, "Our experiential approach to team development has a huge impact on MBA students. We believe that learning works best when individuals get to experience what new behaviours and skills feel like, rather than simply reading about them in a text book.

"Our programme for Manchester Business School is custom designed to meet the students' individual requirements and uses a blend of interventions to improve individual confidence, trust and support. These new skills sets and behaviours will enable them to support each other throughout their work at Manchester and assist them throughout the rest of their careers."
