We strongly encourage applications for the Executive Transition Program, Bringing Technology to Market, IT Leadership Program or the General Management Seminar.

How to apply:

Please send following documents to

  • A completed ESMT application form for executive development programs

Acceptance letters will be distributed 2 weeks after the application deadline.



"As I grew in my job, I realized that stepping up to general management responsibilities requires to learn new things, to lead others in a different way, to initiate and deal with ongoing change, to develop a different mindset - but also to unlearn old behaviors. The ETP helped me greatly in developing the knowledge, skills, behaviors and attitudes to deal with these challenges successfully. It also helped me manage difficult decisions and has helped me create a network of peers and mentors to help challenge the tasks ahead of me.”

Merryn Scholz, Managing Director, K.I.T. Group


"During the ETP I was promoted to become the Director of Service Center at Klarna. The program helped me significantly in the challenges of moving successfully from one job to another. I did not only learn a lot during the content sessions, but also profited immensely from the diverse group of participants – both during the class sessions and the many social activities we enjoyed together.”

Alexandra Strömberg, Director of Service Center, Klarna
