Program design and content
The main feature of the FEM program is its emphasis on creating value:
A substantial part of the program is devoted to financial analysis and strategy. It will help you understand how business models, strategies and operational efficiency are reflected in the financial statements.
In a competitive landscape a business has continuously to rethink its business models and strategies, and be prepared to change. These topics are afforded special program attention. We also focus on ways to broaden insights on how to implement innovation and change in organizations.
We focus on how a company’s financial position enables or restricts, allows or limits its future development. This component is designed to achieve both intellectual and intuitive understanding of these interdependencies.
Live Learning Projects
As a backbone of the program we work with key business challenges which each participant has identified and brought to the program. The challenges are addressed and processed throughout the program in coaching sessions and facilitated by SSE Executive Education faculty. These projects are furthered in workshops with invited guests, where the development of communication skills is an additional learning take-away.
Faculty and learning approach The entire learning process is supported by world-class international faculty and experienced coaches. The program features international faculty associated with SSE Executive Education, and includes a wide spread from academia to consultants and experienced managers from the business community.
The key content areas are woven seamlessly into the program, offering the participants an on-going learning journey through dialogue, structured learning reviews and reflection. The program sessions are designed to capture the accumulated and diverse management experience of the participant group, providing opportunities for exploring issues across business and cultural boundaries.
A holistic perspective for successful leadership
Successful management and leadership impose complex demands. Managers at all levels need to find a balanced personal competence profile which combines leadership, management control and the ability to move the business forward. Furthermore, a good manager must understand the inter-relation of these three key management perspectives. A holistic perspective is the cornerstone of successful leadership.
The challenge of integrating Business, Control and Leadership lies in focusing on how these areas interact. For instance, the complexity of corporate organizations can be addressed both from a Leadership and a Control perspective, whereas the company’s operational vision bridges Leadership and Business development.
In this truly comprehensive program, all these areas are represented and tailored to tackle the actual challenges you face in your role as manager and leader. This methodology places great demands on the learning process and on the participants’ ability to switch between various perspectives.
