IMD Offering Five New Exec Ed Programs

Switzerland-based IMD yesterday (Feb. 20) announced plans to launch five new open-enrollment programs in 2013. These leadership-focused programs are designed to meet the ever-evolving needs of senior executives, including growing demands for insight on Asia.

The new programs are The Leadership Challenge (TLC), The China Strategy Challenge (CSC), Organizational Learning in Action (OLA), Leading the Family Office (LFO) and Orchestrating Winning Performance (OWP) – Singapore.

“These five new programs complement our existing portfolio well,” said IMD President Dominique Turpin in a statement. “Business is constantly changing and in order to deliver high-impact executive education, IMD must adapt, renew, and create to remain the most effective option for today’s global business leaders.”
