Talent Trailblazer

Accelerate your career from the start

Talent Trailblazer

Executive education program in English

Investing in talents is key for continuous innovation, advancing digitalization, and sustaining high performance levels over the long term. Talent Trailblazer is ESMT Berlin’s offering for the most junior executive education audience: the talents. Although they may have been identified – and eventually trusted – with high-profile projects, talents also need the opportunity to grow and acquire the latest knowledge and skills. This three-day program covers the strategic and business skills that will be necessary for them to understand and support their organizations’ long-term objectives. In addition, it addresses the topic of getting ideas through on a more junior level of the organization, thus enabling talents to act with more impact.
