Harvard Business School Senior Executive Program
A senior executive programme to better equip Africa-based leaders for the 4th Industrial Revolution with cutting edge leadership, strategy and innovation skills applicable across Africa and beyond.
This executive program will run in 2 different destinations - Block 1: Kigali, Rwanda; Block 3: Boston, USA.
With 54 independent countries, Africa faces a distinct set of social, economic, and political conditions that create unique business challenges — along with exciting opportunities. To achieve their considerable potential, Africa’s businesses needs, to an even greater extent, executives who can design and execute effective strategies for growth within and beyond the continent. These leaders must also excel at creating innovative offerings, nurturing high-performance teams and organizations, and navigating rapid change in Africa’s dynamic markets.
To build these exceptional leaders, Harvard Business School Executive Education continues to deliver the annual Senior Executive Program — Africa, in partnership with the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS). Designed to strengthen your leadership skills and build your insight into local, regional, and global markets, the program explores the proven approaches of successful leaders in Africa and around the globe, preparing you to compete effectively, seize the region’s many growth opportunities, and sustain success for your firm.
