Summary

Five leading global business schools. 18 months. Five 10-day modules. The IMPM programme breaks the mould to create leaders who can develop people and shape business in a complex and changing global context.

Today’s senior managers must be negotiators, problem solvers, entrepreneurs, and more. Iconic management thinker Henry Mintzberg co-founded this course 20 years ago to teach these qualities. His ethos is shared by the 75 international faculty members who bring their research and academic concepts to this programme.

You will study organisations, self, relationships, change and context at McGill University (Canada), Lancaster University (UK) , Yokohama National University (Japan), FGV EBAPE (Brazil), and the Institute of Management Bangalore (India)

Traditional learning approaches are complemented by cultural experiences such as a yoga class in India or a Zen monastery in Japan, which are designed to help you unlearn behaviours, break down silo mentality and develop new mindsets.

You will focus on how to combine your significant functional experience with the ability to pause and reflect, turning that experience into new knowledge. You will also become comfortable with the uncertainty and complexity that accompanies senior positions.

Contributions are made on an equal basis between faculty and students. You are not passive receivers but co-creators. You are also encouraged to share your learning with a project team of up to ten colleagues in your own organisation. After graduation, you can return for two to three days on modules to build another layer of learning.

Participants come from a wide range of industry backgrounds such as engineering, media, telecoms, IT and transport.
