Advanced Management Programs

Get to know five different programs which promise an immersive educational experience

Five different Advanced Management Programs which promise an immersive educational experience.


The program Der Aufsichtsrat targets (future) supervisory, director or advisory board members, who want to further professionalize their work. Participants will deepen their knowledge of familiar topics and learn new subjects for the challenging task ahead. At the same time, the foundation will be laid for a network of engaged, elected office holders that will extend beyond the duration of the program.


The General Management Seminar and Executive Transition Program are designed for experienced, functional managers who have recently moved or are about to move into positions with more general management responsibility. The programs deliver an integrative understanding of management insights - that is - the tools, skills, and attitudes participants will need to achieve greater levels of success and competence as managers. They will return to their company with the broad strategic understanding necessary to seize business opportunities for long-term success.


In 2020, we are launching two new programs in the Advanced Management cluster in cooperation with the Hidden Champions Institute:

  • The Supervisory and Advisory Boards in Family Businesses program (Aufsichts- und Beiräte in Familienunternehmen) focuses on specific challenges and competences that are relevant for family businesses.
  • The C-Level program is a tailor-made program developed for owners, board members and managing directors of medium-sized companies.


Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Management

The Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Management is a new university-level certificate awarded by ESMT Berlin to serve as a formal recognition of a participant’s professional development. To qualify for the Diploma, candidates must participate in an ESMT flagship program, i.e., either the Executive Transition Program (in English) or the General Management Seminar (in German).
