The MPM, first offered in 2011, aims to advance executives and administrators into thinking and effective project managers by equipping them with the knowledge and skills of project management principles and practice. Candidates will not only be required to learn from academicians and experienced practioners to be proficient in specialist areas such as managing costs and risks, resolving conflicts and examining supply and value chain but also be competent over a broad spectrum of general management disciplines that include leadership, strategy and ethics, and investigative case studies.
Such proficiency will endow individuals with the strength and confidence to become significant and successful project managers, a role that is incresingly in demand and therefore profitable in an economic and investment environment that challenges industry in both developing and developed nations. Success in their project management career will also give candidates high potential for senior and high management positions as well as arm individuals for greater success in management consultancy or other rewarding entrepreneurial ventures.
ELM stands for entrepreneurship, leadership and management (elm). It reflects our understanding of the multifaceted role of both individuals and organisations that at any one time the trinity role of entrepreneurship, leadership and management interplays to create, manage and sustain a business over different phases of its life.
The ELM schema integrates the role of mindset transformation with process competency development for the three vectors of elm. We term this the mindset based competency approach to understand and use elm in strategic business thinking and operational management. The ELM Framework underlies our philosophy of the ELM Graduate School executive education and the way we teach and learn business in the HELP Group.
The ELM Framework (right) synthesises relevant theoretical constructs and integrates them into a practical system of decision making process concerning elm. It is a useful tool to facilitating thinking out the right business model and strategy execution.The ELM Framework starts with the end: that is, it is outcome based rather than problem based. VOW is the final goal. It comprises values, opportunities and wealth. Wealth in Chinese is cai, which has two meanings in written form: knowledge and material wealth. VOW can be defined in whatever way one wants to. But they must be worthy of our talents, reflective of the ethics of our personal life, and society or other centered.What is crucial is that elm is the powerful driving force of the mindsets (CAAAC). CAAAC stands for the Contemplative, Analytic, Adaptive and Actualization and Consequential Mindsets. These specific mindsets must be interpreted as the transformative growth mindset, and not just any mindset change. The growth mindset grows the competencies of each of the elm to a higher level in order to lead every growth phase of a business.
ELM offers 14 postgraduate programmes such as Doctor of Business Administration, Graduate Certificate in Accounting, Master of Applied Psychology in Coaching, Master of Managerial Psychology, Master of Clinical Psychology in Malaysia and more.
