Since the contract is at the core of all commercial transactions, good contract management is a core competency of successful organisations. The effective expenditure of money and resources is dependent on successful contract management activities – selecting the appropriate models, understanding the legal principles of creating a contract, managing each party’s rights and obligations, and dealing with claims and disputes are all key areas within this discipline.

The programme will deal with commercial contract management, and follow principles widely used in international contracting.

  • Improve their understanding of the legal and commercial elements of contracts
