Event Details

The Executive Academy is a state-of-the-art leadership development programme designed specifically to address the needs of senior leadership roles in business schools.

It adopts a holistic approach, starting with building a solid foundation through a Leading oneself module, allowing participants to explore in depth their own leadership style, strengths and skills to focus on. It continues with Leading others and Leading programmes/institutions, delving into leadership in the context of the specific institutions and teams, as well as in the context of the current challenges of management education as a whole. The goal of the programme is to equip participants with tools leading to deeper understanding and awareness of their own skills, qualities and purpose and understanding how to align these with their role in their institutions and their teams, in order to thrive as a leader in the digital age business school environment.

The Executive Academy journey is divided into three phases: 

  • A preparatory phase, which includes self-study and a comprehensive 360° feedback exercise.
  • A face-to-face week in the selected region, with the maximum of 20 participants admitted to each stream.
  • A project phase at the participants’ home institutions with support and feedback provided by faculty facilitators and personal coaches.

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.

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.
