Who should attend
/The MBE is designed for executives with functional management experience. In general, they have gained managerial experience on-thejob. They have been identified for expanded functional responsibilities and broader general management roles within 1 to 3 years or larger team management responsibilities. Participants are high-potential managers between the ages of 28-40 years old, representing a variety of nationalities, and typically do not have an MBA.
About the course
The decisions your functional, regional managers make today and the people they surround themselves with will affect the future of your organisation. Dedicated experts in their domain, but perhaps in need of a refresher course in the business fundamentals, be it Finance, Marketing, Strategy or Human Resources Management, they have high potential and stand out as individuals who could take on expanded responsibilities in the future. Their skills and comprehension of their department and role is already acquired through hands-on, on-the-job experience but for a long term, strategic role, they need to better understand the ins and outs of the organisation. The CEDEP MBE provides the know-how and real life cases for participants to develop their mind-set and prepare for the next step in their career.
These future leaders will delve deep into building their management potential by working effectively across functions, brushing up on their business fundamentals to grow their mindset and take the distance to overview the organisation’s strategy.
The programme is designed for participants to learn from each other’s experiences, share knowledge and best practice, network and take time out to reflect on how to improve their daily routines. At the beginning of the programme we ask participants to make a presentation of their company in order to accelerate the learning process.
The diversity of each MBE group and the history of CEDEP’s faculty with each member organisation makes the programme experience unique and personalised – something CEDEP prides itself on.
Your global business would be nothing without your young talent. This population is crucial for your future and has infinite potential. CEDEP wants to help your talent fulfil their potential and go beyond themselves. The choices they make now and the people they choose to build their teams with will affect your organisation’s future. Regional focus and development plus cross fertilisation is key for innovative business today. The MBE will take participants on a journey of self-discovery. They will gain practical advice and obtain useful tools to enhance their general business knowledge which will be valuable in their day to day business function.
CEDEP believes in its member companies and in their future. By bringing members of our community together with leading CEDEP faculty from all over the world, we hope to share knowledge, best practice, wisdom and experience to develop networks and work in the mutual interest to improve tomorrow’s organisations.
This programme will immerse participants into a fast paced environment where they will go beyond their limits, learn to motivate teams and become better future managers for your organisations
