About the scholarship

Leadership is not a destination but a journey. Accordingly, the INSEAD Advanced Management Program is designed to be a transformative experience within a life-long leadership and learning journey with close, structured contact over the first year and looser networked contact thereafter.

The CEW INSEAD Advanced Management Program is designed for senior executives, including CEOs, COOs, CFOs and heads of product divisions, geographical regions, or other major business units within the private or public sectors. This program is designed to help C-Suite leaders build exceptional levels of strategic, high-performance, and self-aware leadership skills. It also focuses on both organisational and personal impact as a leader. More information about the program can be found here: INSEAD AMP

Program Dates: 2024 TBC
