LENS Program
Career Management Center launches a brand new and unique management training and development program "LENS" (Learning management Essentials for your Next Stage) for all current MBA students. This is a tailor-made program highly relevant to current working professionals with more than 6-7 years of experience, who are aiming at moving up to a team lead/ manager role in 1-2 years' time. The program includes 4 modules in 12 different sessions being held over a period of 24 months, specifically enhancing students' skillsets in Managing Self, Managing Up, Managing Down and Managing Across. The contents are structured independently to enable maximum flexibility for students to attend in view of their busy work and study schedule.

The first module, Managing Self: Think On Your Feet - Power to Speak On the Spot, has been kicked off in May. Through role-play and group exercises during this highly-interactive workshop, our students were introduced to techniques aimed at enhancing their skills in structuring thoughts and ideas in order to deliver clear, concise and persuasive messages in everyday workplace scenarios. The second module, Managing Across: Influencing Without Authority and Conflict Management - Creating a Win-Win Approach, will be held in late June and mid-July respectively.
