Participants are of diverse cultural backgrounds, come from a wide range of industries, and represent the private and public sectors. Participant titles include:

  • CEO, COO, and President
  • Owners and Principals
  • Board Members

The Global CEO Program typically attracts chief decision makers and C-level senior executives with commensurate general management experience in companies with global or regional operations. Participants should be fluent in English for business purposes and willing to share their experiences, viewpoints, and expertise with fellow participants.

This program is ideal for individuals from companies working in areas affected by an uncertain and complex world, such as financial services, telecommunications, health care, and consumer goods, as well as firms impacted by increased pressure from globalized market forces.

About the course

The Global CEO Program: A Transformational Journey offers chief executives an opportunity to step back from the rapid pace of daily business to reflect on the most pressing issues facing their companies, while engaging with seasoned executives from distinct backgrounds, industries, and cultures.

This strategic management program is led by three top-ranked business schools — IESE Business School, the Wharton School, and the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) — and participants will attend one-week modules on three continents: Europe, North America, and Asia.
