Joint program with SDA Bocconi
Talents assigned to their first leadership roles need to prove themselves to their superiors, peers, and collaborators. Succeeding requires a profound change in both skills and mindset: from a talent who delivers value individually to a leader who creates value through others. The Emerging Leaders Program is designed to enable you to manage this critical transition and realize your full leadership potential.
In the first module, you will develop insights and tools to help you deal with the multifaceted contexts in which leadership plays out while learning how effective leadership requires actively managing upwards, downwards, and laterally. In the second module, you will reflect on the responsibilities you have accepted as a future leader. Through intense interactions with faculty, peers, and professional actors, you will explore the ethical and psychological foundations of leadership and work on preparing a foundation for your own individual path to leadership.
