Hidden Champions Institute

HCI Education

In our executive education programs, we impart practical knowledge for and about hidden champions. These courses will be held by renowned experts and characterized by stimulating teaching methods and a direct reference to practice. We offer executive development programs as well as customized programs.

Executive development progams on several topics, such as strategic management, digital transformation, leadership, change management and corporate governance, are held on a regular basis. The program brochure and the ESMT program finder provide a comprehensive overview. Our team is at your disposal for personal advice.

Customized programs are tailor-made for single hidden champions, tackling a specific challenge, such as:

  • Developing talents to secure senior and top management succession
  • Improving general management and leadership competencies among the leadership team
  • Improving functional skills in a particular area, e.g., sales, marketing, customer service, strategy, innovation, finance
  • Developing a joint understanding of the hidden champion’s strategy and values
  • Developing and prototyping ideas using agile methods
  • Dealing with post-merger integration

We closely adapt contents, processes, teaching methods and organizational frameworks to the needs and learning objectives of our clients. Programs range from single-day interventions to complex learning journeys over several years with individual development plans for each participant.

HCI co-director Bianca Schmitz will be pleased to provide you with personal advice.
