Why attend the Global CEO Program

As a CEO, you build your legacy by mapping out your company’s course, charting its strategy, and fostering a culture guided by clear objectives and a shared mission. Today’s global, interconnected world calls for senior leaders who are uniquely attuned to the economic currents and market shifts that could advance — or undermine — their firm’s long-term sustainability. The Global CEO Program has been designed and developed for leaders like you. It will enhance your strategic vision and equip you with new tools to better navigate disruptive trends that could impact your business. By merging the expertise of two top business schools and three global venues, the program delivers a singular learning experience like no other. The modules in Cambridge, Singapore, and Barcelona will give you a stronger grasp of the issues facing your company.
