For members of the supervisory board, board of administration and advisory committees
Advanced Management Programs
We offer four different Advanced Management Programs which promise an immersive educational experience.
The seminar "Der Aufsichtsrat" targets (future) supervisory, director or advisory board members, who want to further professionalize their work. Participants will deepen their knowledge of familiar topics and learn new subjects for the challenging task ahead. At the same time, the foundation will be laid for a network of engaged, elected office holders that will extend beyond the duration of the seminar.
In addition to that we offer the German-speaking program Beiräte und Aufsichtsräte in Familienunternehmen which is aimed at shareholders as well as active and future advisory/supervisory board members of family businesses. Partcipants will discuss with the faculty the central success factors of advisory/supervisory boards in family businesses. In addition, they exchange experiences with members of other family businesses about advisory and supervisory boards.
The General Management Seminar and Executive Transition Program are designed for experienced, functional managers who have recently moved or are about to move into positions with more general management responsibility. The programs deliver an integrative understanding of management insights - that is - the tools, skills, and attitudes participants will need to achieve greater levels of success and competence as managers. They will return to their company with the broad strategic understanding necessary to seize business opportunities for long-term success.
Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Management
The Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Management is a new university-level certificate awarded by ESMT to serve as a formal recognition of a participant’s professional development. To qualify for the Diploma, candidates must participate in an ESMT flagship program, i.e., either the Executive Transition Program (in English) or the General Management Seminar (in German).
