» XTEND results in a Master of Professional Practice (MProfPrac) from Otago Polytechnic
In 2021, SIGNAL's XTEND programme will be offered as a Master of Professional Practice (MProfPrac) through the Otago Polytechnic.
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.
Your MProfPrac can be applied to virtually any role within your team, as it’s individually tailored to your development and your organisation’s goals. Investing in staff is proven to have a 4x return on investment. As a professional programme it offers the vehicle with which to do this, helping you to retain and grow your existing staff and reduce external recruiting requirements.
We are on hand to ensure new practices are integrated into existing organisational systems, helping to embed new learnings, drive tangible business outcomes and deliver real return on investment.
