Managing for Growth is a intensive 4-month executive program aimed at giving you the skills and frameworks across management disciplines needed to create profitable growth. By using experienced international faculty through action learning, the program provides you with the tools you need.
Why choose this Program?
Today’s managers face complex dilemmas in their daily assignments. They are being measured by their ability to contribute to company innovation and growth while simultaneously managing an organization that is expected to become increasingly cost-effective. They are expected to be the executors of corporate strategy initiatives while managing a group of people saturated with change. Overcoming these dilemmas is what Managing for Growth is all about.
We have gathered a team of international faculty from the world’s leading business schools and asked them to extract the frameworks and tools from our and other MBA programs needed to overcome these dilemmas. The result is a very intensive program, where participants will be challenged to apply everything they learn on a live business case.
What is the Program all about?
Managing for Growth is a 4-month intense executive development program designed for professionals and experienced managers. You will work together in groups with a specific challenge from your own or a third-party organization. Having to solve an actual business problem with the tools from the program ensures that you actually learn skills you can use in your daily life as a manager. Having to solve the challenge together with other participants gives you new perspectives on how you work with business challenges.
Every group will be assigned a supervisor who will work with the group as a guide in solving complex business challenges. The group will hand in a report with recommendations to the case organization. The report will be the starting point for the group and individual examination at the end of the program.
