The Michigan Ross Executive Program

Ann Arbor, MI, 03 May - 22 May 2015

Program Description

As a senior manager rising to new levels of executive leadership, you require knowledge and skills aligned with today's changing environment to set a winning vision for your organization and move yourself, your firm, and your industry forward.

In this advanced management program, we'll explore key executive domains, such as redefining corporate strategy, capitalizing on industry conditions and competitive advantage, and expanding your leadership influence. During the three weeks, begin by looking at macro-level and global issues, and then progress to industry-level issues, your organization-level issues, and finally to your own leadership approach. Advanced learning in global economics, strategy, finance, marketing, operations, talent management, and more will be woven throughout. You'll emerge with the executive skills and cross-functional mindset to lead your organization at the highest level.
