PROGRAMME

The Executive Academy - Americas

Target Group
EFMD GN has designed The Executive Academy, the only development offer for leaders of teaching & learning activities and targets the premium segment of the business school sector.

Context
Teaching & Learning Executives - Programme Directors, Assoc./Ass. Deans - need to manage academic degree programmes in alignment with institutional strategies, while living up to a multitude of challenging performance expectations. They need to add value by being champions of implementation and mastering the power of influence, but are often provided with limited direct authority to do so. EFMD’s Executive Academy builds on these inherent dilemmas and offers an exciting development journey for teaching and learning executives.

The core of the Executive Academy is a face-to-face week in the selected region, preceded by a preparatory phase, which includes self-study and a comprehensive 360° feedback exercise. The face-to-face week will be followed by a project phase at the participants’ home institutions with support and feedback provided by the global faculty facilitators. We will admit a maximum of 20 participants to each stream. A rigorous and challenging admission process will ensure that peer-to-peer interaction in the Executive Academy will be meaningful and ability enhancing for all participants. Participants will:

  • Advance through a self-discovery process to better understand their strengths and limitations, which will contribute to the bridging of self-knowledge and self-leadership.
  • Learn how to drive a strategy-driven programme design and review process, how to manage different performance layers and how to interlink stakeholder expectations and satisfaction.
  • Understand and implement disruptive strategies in business education and map performance metrics to actions and milestones.
