Event Details

Target Group
Programme Directors, Associate/Assistant Deans of Teaching & Learning, and Senior Program Managers with a complete overview of (though not necessarily direct responsibility for) the entire academic cycle: admissions, programme design & administration, career services, and alumni management.

For each stream intake, the Executive Academy also seeks to accept managers of corporate universities or executives of corporate talent management departments to cross-fertilize group learning. Corporate participants can improve their understanding of and their ability to interact with business schools.

The Executive Academy journey starts with a preparatory phase, which includes self-study and a comprehensive 360° feedback exercise.

The core of the Executive Academy is a face-to-face week in the selected region, with the maximum of 20 participants admitted to each stream.

Participants will:

  • Advance through a self-discovery process to better understand their strengths and limitations, which will contribute to the bridging of self-knowledge and self-leadership.
  • Learn how to drive a strategy-driven programme design and review process, how to manage different performance layers and how to interlink stakeholder expectations and satisfaction.
  • Understand and implement disruptive strategies in business education and map performance metrics to actions and milestones.

The face-to-face week will be followed by a project phase at the participants’ home institutions with support and feedback provided by faculty facilitators and personal coaches.

A rigorous and challenging admission process ensures that peer-to-peer interaction in the Executive Academy will be meaningful and ability-enhancing for all participants.

Additional information to application process in the context of COVID-19

We are currently accepting applications for the Executive Academy, 2020 Europe Stream. Nonetheless given the WHO announcement declaring the spread of COVID-19 a pandemic, we are taking appropriate actions to ensure the safety of all participants and thus we have adjusted the application process and conditions.

All the above mentioned steps remain the same, nonetheless no program fees will be charged at this point.

Closer to the date of the workshop we will re-evaluate the situation and whether the safety of the workshop participants can be ensured. If the workshop is approved to proceed, all admitted participants will be informed about the decision and will be given a 5-day period to withdraw their application without any penalties.
