Today's global economy calls for multifaceted leaders who have a more holistic view of business, who can spot emerging opportunities, and who can navigate all economic environments. GMP helps functional specialists master new skills and develop new leadership styles—transforming them into outstanding general managers who can lead more effectively and more confidently.
Early career success often comes through specialization in a specific functional domain, but further advancement requires a more comprehensive, multifunctional perspective. Without careful preparation, this transition can be risky and take years to complete—time that companies can ill afford as they attempt to grow their business in a competitive, fast-moving market. GMP is designed to smooth and accelerate this important career transition.
This leadership development program is designed for executives with recently acquired or significantly expanded general management responsibilities, and for senior functional managers who need a broader perspective on company operations or who will become business-unit, division, or regional leaders in the near future.
You return to your organization with the analytical skills needed to identify, frame, and solve complex business problems, the confidence needed to make significant business decisions, and the leadership skills needed to drive fundamental change within your organization. In short, this program is designed to maximize the impact you make when you get back to work.
Through a tightly integrated structure with both on- and off-campus modules, this executive education program combines a collaborative learning environment with a results-focused, action-oriented curriculum. The case-based curriculum presents a holistic picture of leadership with an emphasis on practical knowledge and personalized learning.
