Course: Customised programmes

Queenstown Resort College designs custom programmes for individuals and groups. QRC specialises in educational study tours for holiday and visitor groups, as well as customised professional executive education programmes for corporate groups and visiting dignitaries. Our Executive Suite can also be hired for corporate retreats and management courses.

Combine your desired executive education topics with a choice of QRC general and specific interest courses to make it a truly personalised programme for your group.

You may want to incorporate into your customised programmes cultural activities, leadership and team-building exercises, outdoor adventure, life coaching, educational topics or special interest tours - perhaps golf or wine appreciation.

We will work with you, one-on-one to develop the best programme for your group. You tell us your goals and preferences, and we will come up with a programme to meet your objectives.

Build your own customised programme from the following options:

Executive and Professional Education

Based on our Executive Education series, a full training programme can be developed to meet your professional development needs. Within your management courses, you could include topics such as: strategic leadership, strategic development and implementation, team-building, change management, product development and innovation, finance or marketing.

Leadership and Personal Development

Ideal to do before serious study or a new career, our Leadership and Personal Development courses will extend your boundaries and give you the boost you need to reach your goals.
