Successful businesses know that investing in the next generation of leaders is critical to sustaining competitive advantage and achieving corporate growth over the long term. The Program for Leadership Development (PLD) equips functional managers with the advanced decision-making and execution skills they need to excel as multifaceted leaders. You will emerge fully prepared to take on greater cross-functional responsibilities, facilitate change and innovation, and, ultimately, drive improved performance throughout your organization.
An alternative to the executive MBA, PLD is an accelerated learning experience that puts you on the fast track to leadership. But unlike an executive MBA program, PLD is tailored to your unique leadership goals and challenges.
Designed for individuals who will assume the cross-functional responsibilities of company leadership, PLD presents an integrated view of the fundamentals of management. Leveraging advanced strategies and techniques, you will learn how to excel in decision making, execution, and leadership.
Created for managers and functional specialists with approximately 10 years of work experience, PLD serves individuals with excellent prospects for leadership within their organizations. You and your peers will represent diverse business functions, companies, industries, and countries.
By providing a broader strategic perspective, PLD helps organizations groom the next generation of high-potential leaders. You will experience extraordinary professional and personal growth, while your organization will deepen its talent pool.
Through on-campus and distance-learning modules, this Executive Education leadership training program offers an integrated set of individual and classroom components. The program structure is well suited to the needs and time demands of this accomplished group of managers.
