Certificate in Entrepreneurial Leadership – CEL™

Certificate in Entrepreneurial Leadership™

Be succesful in business innovation and product development and prepare your company for the future. CEL™ is a proven 7-month executive program where managers learn how to turn opportunities into profitable businesses.



About

CEL™ is the proven new business creation program for managers who wish to learn how to turn ideas into profitable businesses.

To stay ahead in an increasingly competitive market space, established companies need to be able to renew their focus and find new business opportunities while, at the same time, optimizing their core business.

Expanding and renewing a company’s core business is remarkably different from optimizing it. You will learn how to handle this dichotomy through the CEL™ Program.

As a CEL™ Program participant you will learn how to clarify ideas, how to incubate and mature these ideas into businesses, and ultimately how to accelerate them to enhance company growth. You will also learn how to navigate new business projects in an organization with a highly optimized core business.

CEL™ is action learning based, meaning that you will apply your gained knowledge to a specific project in your company. This allows you to create direct value for your company throughout the program. Class structure is team based with a maximum of 10 company teams, of 2-3 participants each, working on a new business creation project for their company.

The core concepts of the program are based on the findings of cutting edge research from USA and Europe on how companies renew their core business. The program draws upon highly experienced international experts from the world’s leading business schools who both teach and coach participants in how to apply what they learn to their specific projects.

Testimonials

<strong>Martin Bastian Pedersen, Sacco s.r.l</strong><br />
No question about it, this was the most interesting and fruitful program I ever participated in. I am a scientist by training and the CEL™ program took my understanding of business, innovation and entrepreneurship to a whole new level, which positively affected my career choices and opportunities.<strong>Mette Salling-Mortensen, Vestas Wind Systems A/S</strong><br />
The CEL™ Program equipped my team with a number of useful tools. Also, it was inspiring to meet participants from other companies experiencing the same challenges. It's one thing to have a good idea, it's another thing to mature and ‘sell’ it to the rest of the organization.<strong>Kim Hedegaard Andersen, Haldor Topsøe A/S</strong><br />
Every company that considers innovation and growth to be important should enroll a team in the CEL™ Program.<strong>Bénédicte Flambard, Chr. Hansen A/S</strong><br />
