Certified Manager (CM) 

Which form of cooperation suits your department or team best? Do you need a solid framework so that you can solve complex practical issues? And what actually makes you a successful manager?

Management is a profession in itself. A trade you can learn. A profession with impact. Choose to evolve from a professional to a leader with the Certified Manager for Executives training.

Insight, interaction and impact

Develop crucial skills tailored to the work context.

The post HBO Certified Manager course provides a concrete answer to these issues. You experience that management is a field that is constantly evolving, especially in these times when complex changes follow each other at a rapid pace. As a (prospective) manager you have a versatile bridging function with complex challenges.

During this popular training, three necessary roles as a leader are linked, namely that of leader, coach and manager. This training not only develops business knowledge, coaching and leadership skills, but also challenges you to solve your own practical issues. We call this butter with the fish.
