Advanced Management Program
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.
A CROSS-DISCIPLINARY, MULTIFACETED EXECUTIVE DEVELOPMENT EXPERIENCE
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.
