Building business acumen for you and your organisation.
The requirement for Business Skills is growing, alongside a greater need for cross-functional awareness.

As a delivery unit within the Defence Academy, the Business Skills College groups the professional functions of finance, commercial, programme, portfolio & project management, through life support & supply chain management, and capability & acquisition under one organisation, working with Cranfield University to provide awareness to expert and masters levels of training & education in each but also the ability to develop the suite of cross-cutting business skills necessary to operate effectively.

Our prospectus includes awareness, practitioner and expert level courses to support each functional learning pathway, as well as a range of awareness courses aimed at the non-professional. We also offer MBA, MSc and strategic programmes.

The College contributes to wider Government learning & development initiatives, whilst the competence frameworks used ensure our training and education has relevance across public and private sectors.
