In today’s volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world, managers are required to broaden their competencies, have a far more panoramic view on how business works, while simultaneously managing growth and uncertainty and leading people towards a common goal.
The Senior Executive Diploma provides middle and senior managers with a comprehensive overview of best-practice management in a broad range of areas. It is designed to look at both components of management skills: hard skills on one side, dispelling any uncertainties about subjects like finance, economics, and strategy; and soft skills on the other, helping managers reflect on themselves and evaluate their approach and how they manage people and cultures.
Participants will transcend looking at business functions as silos and will be able to connect the dots, analyzing the business environment in a holistic way to come to relevant conclusions and make good business decisions. They will also develop an understanding of digital innovation, where they will learn how to evaluate and lead digital transformation initiatives.
This program consists of seven core courses and three online business acumen courses. Participants are required to complete all courses, in sequential order, in one academic year.
