The world is constantly evolving, but the pace of change has never been so rapid.

The latest series of changes promise to produce true innovation that will both reinvent and disrupt our future. From advances in AI, to the far-reaching implications of automation and climate change, humanity is about to face its most pressing threats and promising opportunities.

Business leaders often deal with change in isolation. In reality, however humanity’s greatest challenges are developing simultaneously and pose new contractions on business and organisations. To respond to these major shifts, you have to understand and approach them holistically. It is only by immersing ourselves in the nature of these challenges, that we can understand them more deeply and discover new connections between them. This is how organizations can develop the most effective solutions to the opportunities and tensions that lie ahead.

Our two-week executive retreat focuses on the challenges facing the next generation of business leaders, and explores the most appropriate and practical solutions. It is an ideal opportunity to take a step back, consider the larger picture, and begin to develop solutions that will be necessary for the decade to come


Successful completion of the Leadership 2030 program will enable you to:

  • Acquire a deeper and more integrated understanding of the challenges of 2030 and how they will affect your industry
  • Understand how these challenges will impact business and its relationship with society
  • Explore and develop practical solutions to meet these challenges
  • Be capable of integrating these solutions within the specific context of your organization .


This course will be held in two global capitals across two weeks in July and October 2019



London School of Economics, London, United Kingdom The first week at LSE in London focuses on the challenges, tensions, contradictions and opportunities that business leaders will meet in the future. Global threats, automation, climate change and the future of work, are just some of the subjects that will be explored and analyzed.
