About the course

"Hidden champions" are mainly medium-sized companies which hold a leading international market position and are not well known to the general public despite their success. But they should be – because executives of all companies can learn a lot from the successful concepts of hidden champions. At the same time, the hidden champions themselves have to face and cope with special challenges.

The Hidden Champions Institute (HCI) is the world's first academic institution dedicated to hidden champions, thus providing them with an academic home.

Our mission is to support entrepreneurs and executives by generating and disseminating knowledge for and about hidden champions.

To this end, the HCI operates on three different levels:

  • Research: We generate practical und scientifically relevant knowledge for and about hidden champions.
  • Training: We impart practical knowledge for and about hidden champions in our executive education programs.
  • Network: We provide an independent platform for hidden champions in order to learn from each other and build a reliable network. Therefore, the HCI will regularly organize conferences and further network events.

Who should attend

Executives of mid-sized companies who are in charge of business development or strategic management and who wish to understand the success of hidden champions; sales executives who intend to do business with hidden champions and build solid relationships with them.
