The program's integrated learning environment creates an unrivaled opportunity for individual development, ongoing exchange with peers, and action learning.
Case Method – The case method developed by HBS has been long recognized as an incredibly powerful business education tool. Moreover, the program faculty's leadership and expertise in case writing and teaching add a powerful dimension to the learning experience. You will engage in an interactive learning process that replicates executive decision making in actual business situations. Incorporating both written and "live" case studies that offer multiple levels of learning, the program compels executives to identify relevant issues and to apply practical business lessons to their own situations and companies.
Dynamic Interaction – All program activities are structured to foster formal and informal interchange among high-level peers from different backgrounds, companies, and industries, as well as with the faculty members from the collaborating business schools. Classroom discussions, case studies, team projects, and study groups promote the exchange of ideas and experiences; stimulate fresh thinking; and encourage different points of view. This shared learning creates a unique opportunity for you to reexamine and reformulate your goals and strategies, both professionally and personally.
Action Orientation – The program's action-oriented team approach, driven by HBS's participant-centered methodology, helps you to apply your personal experience and new business knowledge to generate solutions in real time. While examining strategic issues, you are encouraged to consider specific areas for application, particularly how you can leverage structure, processes, culture, and incentives to implement strategic change within your organization.
Language – The official language of the Global CEO Program for China is Chinese. Translation and interpretation to Chinese will be provided for participants.
"This program can help CEOs find new ways to improve their leadership skills, and that was an important factor for me. It also helped me to understand systematically all the links and aspects of the entire commercial operation of my own company."
