Become a comprehensive leader

Challenge convention. Expand your reach.

The world has become fast-paced, uncertain, ambiguous and complex, interlinking business with economics, geopolitics and cultures. Companies bear new responsibilities towards stakeholders and society. Transformational change requires individuals to behave and think differently. Aspiring and engaged leaders must be equipped with new skills, perspectives, paradigms and narratives in order to make sense of and succeed in the future world of international business and to maintain a high level of commitment at all levels in their organization in order to solve complex business issues and carve new routes.

The SKEMA’s Global Executive MBA is a transformative journey designed to train experienced decision-makers and to propel them to become comprehensive leaders who will shape their ecosystems and achieve sustainable business results.
