Sponsoring your employees' academic and professional development benefits both your organisation and your staff.

Our programmes, with their rigorous theoretical frameworks and practical focus on current issues are relevant to businesses, international organisations, government institutions and NGOs. Modules are designed and written by professionals whose own research is at the forefront of current thinking.

Our IPAs give employers the opportunity to offer staff an individual module to fill a skills gap specialist, while our Masters' programmes and Postgraduate Diplomas equip employees with a greater depth of knowledge and training suited to your organisation's needs. Once enrolled, module credits can be used towards further study, which means that IPA students can continue on to a Postgraduate Diplomas and then on to a full Master's programme.
