About the course
Are you ready to develop your career by finding new insights, perspectives and ways of working? The RSM Advanced Management and Leadership Programme (AMLP) will help take your leadership abilities to the next level. Develop yourself, and develop your organisation.
Acquire the skills and knowledge to adapt, thrive and succeed
Business demands true leaders, not just managers. The Advanced Management and Leadership programme developed by RSM Executive Education at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) is an intensive 11-day modular management programme taught in English that will sharpen your critical thinking skills and enable you to enhance your impact as a leader. Based on real issues, economic realities and global shifts and megatrends, AMLP will challenge the way you view yourself and the way your organisation operates. The programme requires you to take a step back from day-to-day tasks so that it can equip you with new skills and knowledge to adapt, thrive and succeed. With 11 days of classroom experience spread over three modules, and additional pre- and post-programme support and activities, this intensive journey will expose you to the best thinking in the field, and enable you to dramatically enhance your leadership skills and impact.
You’ll return to your workplace refreshed, re-energised, and ready to deal with any future challenges that come your way.
By participating in this programme you will:
- develop greater self-awareness and confidence in your own leadership style – how it works and why it works
- enhance and update your knowledge of key and trending strategic, financial and leadership concepts
- master leading-edge models and practices that you can apply immediately
- acquire new knowledge and insights from a network of peers
- gain entry to the benefits and privileges of RSM’s alumni network.
The Advanced Management and Leadership Programme at RSM offers a choice of four modules; leadership, strategy, executive decision-making and finance.
