WOMEN LEARNING ON THE CONTINENT

 

Twelve women following a University of Lincolnshire & Humberside management course have just returned from a five-day trip to the Continent.

 

Eight students visited Valencia and four travelled to Vienna as part of their course, ‘Women Into Management in the 21st Century’. The trip was paid for by the European Social Fund, which also provided funding to cover course fees, childcare and travel costs.

 

“While they were abroad the students met students on similar courses as well as other women managers and entrepreneurs,” said course leader Jenny Headlam-Wells. “They particularly benefited from discussions on the subject of international business and management, including the introduction of the Euro and the question of a ‘glass ceiling’ for women managers.”

 

The university is now recruiting for the next ‘Women Into Management in the 21st Century’ course, which begins on 22nd February. “It’s a course for women aged over 25, graduate or equivalent, with some management experience, who have taken a career break for a year or more to look after family and who are aiming to return to work and develop their career at management level,” said Ms Headlam-Wells.

 

The course is run by the Hull Business School at the university’s Cottingham Road campus. For more details contact Jenny Headlam-Wells on 01482 463055 or Gabrielle Hayes on 01482 463562.
