Post-Graduate Programme in People Development & Sustainability
Proposal Prepared by: Dr Brendan J Gomez
This post-graduate programme focuses on human development within people systems, particularly in fast-growing organizations and nations. It combines the applied sciences of human development, psychology, business, health and finance. Collectively, the programme provides integrated approaches in addressing current needs of progressive nations and systems. Papers map onto key needs of micro and macro systems, particularly in developing frameworks for addressing change, careers, creativity, coaching, conflict, profits, health, and international exchange.
This post-graduate programme is modular and each module is equivalent to 30 academic credits. Each module is equivalent to 12 learning weeks and covers about 10 – 12 topics. Students who successfully complete Modules 1 to 4 receive a Post-Graduate Diploma. Those who move onto Modules 6 – 8 will receive a Masters in People Development & Sustainability.
People in or who intend to be in management and leadership positions of Industry, Government, and Non-Government sectors. The programme envisions graduates integrating back into their positions with greater applied skills for strategizing and addressing issues within their own organizations, or in being employed at key positions in addressing critical human development areas either through programming or policy.
