Companies across the world are facing mounting challenges in today’s turbulent global economic environment. With a burgeoning virtual economy, new competition from emerging markets, and dire economic forecasts from Europe, today’s business executives need a deeper understanding of business fundamentals and a heightened capacity to lead. Successful managers must increasingly be able to develop a global mindset, as well as the capacity to manage – and adapt to – complex issues that typically accompany volatile changes in the marketplace.

CEIBS, Asia’s leading business school, has developed the Diploma in Leadership Development Programme: Future Leaders’ Boot Camp (DLDP) to transform emerging managers into leaders who can confidently embrace their roles as major players in today’s increasingly complex business environment. The brand new DLDP is an upgraded version that has been developed based on one of CEIBS’ flagship programmes, the Diploma in Management Programme which was launched in 1998 and has been widely welcomed by multinationals in China for the past 15 years. To reflect the changing global business environment, the DLDP keeps the core business fundamentals of the old DIMP and adds an additional emphasis on personal leadership development. Instead of the traditional topic-focused programme delivery approach, the DLDP adopts an integrative and innovative methodology to re-enforce what participants learn through a special focus on experiencing, coaching, exercising, teamwork and competing.

The upgraded DLDP will provide an intensive and inspiring learning experience to young and ambitious managers who are seeking career advancement and broader responsibilities. The programme is divided into two parts – a compulsory section of four modules and an elective section of two modules. Each compulsory module is presented in a single 5-day session across a weekend. The compulsory section allows participants to develop a firm foundation in the fundamentals of management, including skills in various functional areas, meanwhile, exploring their leadership potential and enhancing their leadership and business capabilities. The elective section enables participants to develop their business competencies further according to their areas of expertise and interest. The elective modules offer nearly 20 choices, in key business areas, such as marketing, operations, organizational behaviour, strategy, finance and accounting. For applicants from outside China, the programme has the additional benefit of giving participants the opportunity to accelerate their leadership potential while also building their understanding of this critically important market.


The programme is tailor-made for up-and-coming leaders, providing an innovative and rewarding learning experience. We will help you to:

  • Build your understanding of business essentials (finance, economics, marketing, operations and strategy)
  • Reflect on your personal and professional goals and give you the tools needed to achieve your targets
  • Explore your leadership potential, shape your leadership style and excel personal leadership development
  • Gain an understanding of the business environment in China.

The programme is challenging, intensive and interactive. In addition to traditional classroom lectures, the course integrates leadership exercises, extensive personal/group coaching, discussion of real-life case studies and action learning projects.
