HBS offers four comprehensive leadership programs that prepare you to assume greater responsibility—the Owner/President Management (OPM) program, the Advanced Management Program (AMP), the General Management Program (GMP), and the Program for Leadership Development (PLD). Designed for individuals at all levels—from top executives and general managers to up-and-coming leaders and business owners—each intensive program delivers what companies need most: visionary leaders who can improve corporate performance and drive competitive advantage.
