General managers operate in the area of conflict between the interests of customers, suppliers, employees, investors and the society. In addition, globalization, digital transformation and environmental protection regulations are changing technologies and social processes at great speed.
For innovative and international companies, global competition offers both opportunities and risks. As a leader, you are expected to identify trends, plan strategically, motivate employees, ensure the financial stability of your company, respond appropriately to sudden challenges such as the Corona pandemic as well as to think innovatively and act in a socially responsible manner.
Our program prepares you to take on these broad responsibilities. You will learn how to address both the technology and innovation dynamics of our time as well as the cost pressures. You will learn how to develop strategies, initiate change processes, control risks, lead confidently and assume your corporate and social responsibility.
You will improve your strategic thinking by occupying a position on the board of directors in a business simulation. The essential aspects of team leadership and development will be demonstrated during a full-day outdoor training.
Participation in General Management Seminar has been a milestone in the careers of many of our alumni, because apart from the skills they have gained, they have been provided with a network of peer leaders and experts from academia and practice.
