Linking theory with practice

The MDP links theory with practice by recognizing that organisational complexity and uncertainty within a business requires strong leadership and direction. Our Interactive learning aims to provide managers with a better understanding of leadership concepts in relation to the needs of organisations. Participants will improve their leadership and decision-making skills and utilize their leadership values and ethics in a real world context.

Learning Experience

The classroom component of the modules is not delivered consecutively, but rather spread out over several weeks. Managers complete readings and assignments before or after each session. We have two methods of delivery to suit the needs of organisations; in-class sessions and connected learning. In-class sessions are geared towards exploring and discussing learning content, sharing experience and real life incidents, and applying the knowledge and topics discussed in regards to current situations and context within the organisation. Connected learning offers the same format online, with six live sessions lasting roughly two and a half hours each.

grade

Grading & Feedback

All assignments are graded individually by the facilitator and then sent to the managers. Additionally, the facilitator provides specific feedback to each participant so they understand how they can improve their assignments moving forward or address any misunderstandings or misinterpreted ideas.

time

Time Investment

Managers are expected to invest around 10-15 hours per week. This includes in-class sessions, additional reading materials, and assignments.

Yes, there is the option to benefit from the MDP in a virtual learning setting. Participants will attend a total of six live sessions with an experienced facilitator, each lasting roughly two and a half hours.

The program was designed to ensure participants have a rounded skill set and knowledge so that they are able to deliver value to the organisation. However, we understand that each organisation’s situation is different, our consultants always understand the context and always work closely with you to deliver the learning experience to your managers. The exact modules and their order is something we always consider according to the learners’ existing knowledge, skill and experience as well as the modules’ learning objectives.
While we do not typically customise or tailor the content of the modules themselves (outline, topics covered ...etc.) there is always room for tailoring when it comes to the assignments to ensure the learning is applied in areas relevant to your organisation’s current needs.
Mirqah’s Research and Development team is always working on crafting new learning experiences. Currently, these modules are the ones completed and available for delivery, however we have other modules in development which will be available down the line.
We have found that this timeline serves our clients best, most of the time. The order of the modules may differ according to the current projects, initiative and focus of the organisation, however the pace and the total duration of the program is what we recommend. This is not mandatory and our consultants work with you to determine the best pace, format and dates for the project taking into consideration all the current circumstances of the organisation and participants.
