How it works


If you’ve recently assumed enterprise-level responsibilities or are poised to do so, this condensed and immersive professional development experience will help you assess the impact of your leadership skills on your organization, prepare you to create markets and drive growth and equip you to lead your organization through the challenges and opportunities of the 21st-century global marketplace.

Unlike the "MBA refresher" offerings that require a six-to-eight week commitment, the Kellogg Advanced Management Program delivers intensely focused, extraordinarily rich, well-paced content in two formats to best fit your busy schedule and your preferred learning style.

New in 2018: Kellogg’s Advanced Management Program’s new modular format is designed to serve the needs of busy senior executives who cannot schedule three consecutive weeks out of the office. Come for two weeks in the summer and then return for a final capstone week in the fall. You have the opportunity to put your new skills and insights into practice and return to Kellogg to debrief and build on this foundation. See the dates for each format below.


Led by cross-disciplinary group of senior Kellogg faculty members, all experienced in working with top-level executives, this highly participatory program is enriched by meaningful interaction with other C-level executives, board members and senior executives of major multinational companies. In addition to stimulating classroom sessions focused on cutting-edge business knowledge and insights, your experience will include:

  • Leadership coaching
  • Simulations and experiential learning
  • Topic-based workshops
  • Humanities and arts-based education
  • Participatory debates
  • Wellness workshops

You’ll leave this program with a mastery of advanced business concepts and the skills and confidence to apply them immediately in your organization.

Program Framework

The program features Kellogg’s top faculty who have extensive experience working with senior executives. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to interact with CEOs, board members and other senior executives of major multinational companies. The program focuses these key areas:

Week 1 - Leadership skills Participants will build on their strengths, address weaknesses and develop the dexterity to manage enterprise-wide responsibilities while staying true to themselves.

Week 2 - Change management Building on the insights gathered in Week 1, participants learn to apply these skills to drive change throughout the organization—such as engaging with the board and leading cross-functional teams.

Week 3 - Taking action The final week synthesizes key lessons and frameworks into an individualized action plan.

Post-program, the Advanced Management Program’s network of instructors and global peers provides continuing guidance and support.

Who should attend

Principal candidates for the program are experienced senior executives with a minimum of 20 years of business experience, including five to 10 years in a general management or senior functional role. An Advanced Management Program participant will be poised to or have just taken on enterprise-level responsibilities. These high potential executives need to "look over the horizon" and anticipate business challenges and opportunities in a global marketplace.

Federal Government leaders should consider this program as part of their ongoing professional development. The curriculum in this program supports the Executive Core Qualifications.
