Since joining the AIM-UWA Business School Alliance as its Director more than 18 months ago, Suellen Tapsall has witnessed significant growth in executive education with interest from corporate, government and non-profit sectors. We touch base with Suellen who provides an update on what is happening with the Alliance programs.
About Executive Education with UWA's Business School
In keeping with its belief in learning as a life-long journey, the Business School formed a strategic alliance with the Australian Institute of Management.
The AIM-UWA Business School Alliance unites the intellectual power of one of Australia's leading Business Schools with Western Australia's leading training and development institute, providing research and business (i.e. real world) based, globally relevant frameworks for addressing the issues of today's business leaders.
The programs offered provide a selected range of leading edge development opportunities for participants and are specifically designed to cater for the busy senior manager. Flexible, customised leadership and management development programs are offered as both open programs or delivered into clients' own workplaces.

Update on the Alliance Executive Programs
It's been an exceptionally busy year for the Alliance. The following is an update of activities.
Rio Tinto Asset Management Program
The Rio Tinto Asset Management Development Program, which was awarded to the AIM-UWA Alliance against significant international competition, has now commenced. This short course builds on the expertise of Dr Melinda Hodkeiwicz of the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics and the UWA Business School. The first program was delivered in the US in late September.
UN Leadership Program to Commence
The Alliance is pleased to advise that the first UN leadership program will commence late in 2007. The program which is delivered by an international consortium that the Business School is a part of will bring together 49 senior managers for a four-day leadership conference with an international team of seven coach-facilitators working with small groups of participants. Business School academic, Dr Renu Burr, will participate as one of the coaches in the first program.
State Government Programs
The Alliance continues to be extremely busy in the State Government sector currently delivering whole-of-sector programs in leadership and management, finance, sustainability and strategic human resource management as well as working in public sector organisations including Department of Premier & Cabinet, Department of Sport and Recreation, Dept of Justice, Watercorp and a variety of others.
Advanced Management Program
The Advanced Management Program held in September 2007 was booked out and attended by a mix of over 35 international and local (statewide) participants from the public and private sector.
