Is your next step to master the art and science of change?

CEW is offering two scholarships to study Leading Change in Complex Organisations at MIT Sloan in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2020.

About the course

The 21st-century organisation is enormously complex, difficult to understand, and even more difficult to manage. This course helps executives harness the leadership skills, political resources, and cultural understandings needed to guide successful organisational change. It is a highly interactive program that draws managers and executives from around the world. As a participant, you will learn through classroom conversations, exercises, group work, case studies and a software-based business simulation. For more information about the course visit MIT Sloan.

Course dates

11–15 May 2020

Inclusions and obligations

The scholarship includes course fees, return economy class flights, accommodation, and most meals. Applicants must commit to attending the course on the dates specified. The successful applicant must provide a report about her scholarship experience, and may also be required to speak at CEW events.
