      “Management of Learning, seven years in a row number one in the rankings and then you decide to change the name of the programme? What a move.”
      “Yes, indeed, quite a daunting move, but the world is constantly changing, so is the way organisations strategically organise their departments. Just like research and development (R&D) is a common term, learning and development (L&D) is the term being used more often to refer to management of learning nowadays. That’s why we changed the name. However, we stay true to the content of the programme, just to make sure future employers will recognise you as their future stars.
