Leading business school INSEAD has unveiled a brand-new program for executives, designed to help them lead in today’s increasingly complex and rapidly changing business world.
This comes as the world faces multiple disruptions post-pandemic, from supply chain challenges to geopolitical and energy crises, and as leaders struggle to detect the trends and shifts impacting businesses today.
In response, INSEAD – which is widely regarded as being at the forefront of innovation and is one of the leading business schools worldwide dedicated to delivering immersive online executive experiences – has spent the last few years analysing the changing face of business and the changing needs of executives.
The result is a truly transformational program designed to help executives respond to the volatile and ambiguous contexts today, and to look beyond short-term gains to understand the larger context and create sustainable value and impact for stakeholders.
Titled LEAD Lead, Engage, Advance, Drive – and set to welcome the first intake of executives in November 2022, the program offers the tools and techniques to help executives know precisely where to focus energy and resources by basing it on three core pillars – Sensing Value, Delivering Value and Sustaining Value.
“As leaders grapple with today’s complex world, they look to create lasting value amidst all the noise and obstacles,” says Charles Galunic, Program Director for INSEAD LEAD and Professor of Organisational Behaviour. “The impactful and rigorous 12-month learning journey helps executives to see the world through multiple lenses and drive meaningful impact and relevant results.”
Design and content of program reflects changing world of business and executives
It’s not just the program’s content that reflects the changing world, but the design of the program with its 12-month online capability.
The program leverages INSEAD's proficiency in online, virtual and blended learning to deliver high-impact, multi-dimensional and interactive learning experiences.
Executives can learn at a pace convenient to their schedules, while the unique design of the course means that complex concepts are delivered in short snippets in a comprehensible way via online and asynchronous delivery.
The learning journey is further enhanced by live (synchronous) touchpoints, live virtual presentations, and an in-person capstone at INSEAD Europe campus, where they can engage with INSEAD faculty, coaches, and an international peer community.
“The unique learning design is an excellent fit for busy executives looking to advance their career and make an impact,” says Severine Guilloux, INSEAD Chief Marketing Officer.
The deadline to apply for the first intake is 14 November 2022, with the program starting on 29 November. The cost is €19,950.
