These include, elements of management theory (team work, leadership, organisational skills), communication skills (verbal, written and graphic) and interpretation of land form and function (via Geographical Information Systems GIS). In addition the course introduces Managers to a research-based approach to knowledge acquisition and problem solving skills.
