SIGNAL’s XTEND professional programme was created to help develop your professional tech skills and leadership capabilities, enabling you and your team to reach their full potential.
In setting out the 2020 Budget, Government announced that funding for the ICT Graduate Schools would end when the current funding agreements ended at the end of 2020. This means that the SIGNAL Collaboration will formally end then and in 2021, SIGNAL's XTEND programme will continue to be offered as a Master of Professional Practice (MProfPrac) through the Otago Polytechnic.
Customised. Innovative. Effective.
Professional practice is all about you and your work context. Completed over 18 months from anywhere within NZ, the MProfPrac uses your real-life work experiences as learning material. You work with your employer to identify a strategic challenge within the organisation – you may develop a new process, enter a new market, respond to stakeholder strategy, foster innovation or address company culture.
The Master of Professional Practice allows you to enjoy greater flexibility than traditional, prescribed post-graduate programmes.
