Succeed in the transition to general management responsibility

The ESMT flagship program prepares experienced functional-level executives for the transition to an increased level of general management responsibility. Advancing to the next level of leadership implies the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and competencies as much as fundamental changes in behaviors and attitudes.

New and future general managers will learn in this intense learning and development journey how to evaluate the potentially conflicting interests of the various functions, to prioritize and to remain personally fulfilled at the same time.
