Executive education program in English
icon for live online format


The program takes place in a live online format every Wednesday in the afternoons (duration: 2 hours).

We all realize by now that Covid-19 has created a new normal that is affecting our workplace collaborations, customer relationships, and even entire business models in some industries. In this program, you will acquire new perspectives on how to thrive in this changing landscape from inspiring faculty – all of whom are thought leaders in their fields or senior management advisors. The aim of the program is to broaden your horizons about the new challenges ahead and to pave the way for future growth by looking beyond the current challenges. In these intense two-hour weekly sessions, you will be part of a select group of executives engaged in action-based learning sessions, which will allow you to expand your network and benefit from qualified peer coaching.
