I think all writers should take up this course, Even if or not they are struggling in completion of a script. Grand Thanks Sir.. I could never have imagined myself being so satisfied as a writer , had my friend not recommended this course to me. 5 STARS . WORTHY OF TIME AND PRICE. Infact , i never came across such superb course at such pocket friendly price. Believe me in the beginning, i was doubtful of the course content as i could never believe a super course like this at such affordable price. But im still surprised!!! as i had done really expensive worthless courses ten times the price of this course and gained nothing out of them. THANKYOU SO MUCH✌👌

With detailed coverage of the topic, this online offering is delivered in 30 sections and needs approximately 25 hours of learning time.

Dr. Mr Joel Farnwsorthsss

A comprehensive look at best practice in both leadership and people management. The fundamental start point is that Leadership is different from Management and, although almost all agree to this, research continues to show that businesses and organisations are struggling to identify and use these differences effectively. Business results are suffering as a result. Taken from the European University's MBA programme, this online offering is provided in 30 sections and involves approximately 25 hours of learning. Designed over a six month period in 2019 it brings together much that we have learned on impactive leadership as opposed to effective management!!

Dr. Katina Grigoraskos

This course is designed to develop skills in designing, conducting and evaluating action research in the context of management practice. Research can be one of the most interesting features of any degree course as it offers you a measure of control and autonomy over what you learn. It gives you an opportunity to confirm, clarify, pursue – or even discover –new aspects of a subject or topic you are interested in.

Dr. Mr Joel Farnwsorthsss

A comprehensive look at the progress made and best practices now used increasingly in mainstream HR services that impact business success. The programme covers the moves made from HR's administrative roots to strategic business partner and now the intentions to become a predictive contributor to future business/organisation success. Progress has not been smooth - much more disjointed than we would have liked - but what has emerged (and continues to evolve) are a number of key service deliverables that impact business progress and that set the scene for HR capabilities and deliverables going forward. Taken for the European International Universitiy's MBA programme, this offering is designed in 30 learning sections that require approximately 25 hours of learning.
