Continuing Professional Development
PCU offers a number of programmes designed for working professionals. Many of our students are sponsored by their companies to undertake a qualification to support their career development. We are delighted to welcome individuals or groups to any of our programmes, as well as deliver bespoke programmes to meet employers’ needs.
Our working professional students are delighted to receive highly practical, contemporary training and sought after skills that compliment their roles. Small class sizes alongside classmates who are also professionals, entrepreneurs or small business owners, along with individual attention from experienced lecturers accelerate students' creativity and knowledge.
Evening and weekend classes as well as blended learning delivery is possible at all levels of study across our School of Business and School of Media & IT programmes offering maximum flexibility to the working professional.
PCU also offer bespoke training programmes for organisations. Recent examples include PCU’s School of Business partnering with Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield to create and deliver a business skills training programme, design and delivery of a custom executive programme on Strategic Management for the Czech Ministry of Defence and development of a series of conferences about the EU Solidarity Programme in partnership with the Ministry for Regional Development Structural and Investment Fund.
"I never imagined that the combination of tailored classes, attentive and proficient tutors, and a practical approach towards leadership and strategic management scientific theories could be so invigorating. It was
mind-blowing to correlate the actions that we, as managers, practice daily, and understand the reasons
for those from a scientific standpoint. Even if you are not practised yet, you will have the chance to learn from the beginning how to improve yourself professionally and personally with the help of the theories introduced,
experienced colleagues and caring tutors."

"I work for one of the biggest investment banks in the UK in the High Performance Computing Engineering team as a DevOps Engineer - Vice President. Studying at PCU taught me to think and work independently.
The lecturers encouraged me to improve my analytical skills so that I could express and critically evaluate my work. Furthermore, achieving a British degree gave me an edge when competing for demanding job positions, as they are highly regarded by employers."

"The CIMA sessions with PCU trainers are very helpful to better understand the topics, even though the primary idea is a self-study exercise. Being in the class with other colleagues from Johnson & Johnson opens the door to more questions and we brainstorm these together."
