EFMD Global Network’s Executive Academy builds on these inherent dilemmas and offers an exciting development journey for teaching and learning executives.
The theme of the programme is
“From Leading without Authority to Leading with Impact”
The Executive Academy has been designed to make participants more effective in their professional roles and assume broader and more strategic responsibility for degree programmes (or portfolios).
3 GEOGRAPHICAL STREAMS – 1 GLOBAL PROGRAMME
The Executive Academy will kick off in March with its Europe Stream, which will be followed by the Americas Stream in June. The tour around the globe will conclude with the Asia Stream in October. Participants can register for one of the streams.
3 MODULES – 1 OUTSTANDING LEARNING EXPERIENCE
The core of the Executive Academy is a face-to-face week in the selected region. It will be preceded by a preparatory phase, which includes self-study and a comprehensive 360° feedback exercise. The face-to-face week will be followed by a project implementation phase at the participants’ home institutions with support and feedback provided by the global faculty facilitators.
3 PILLARS – 1 COMPREHENSIVE DEVELOPMENT JOURNEY
Leading Oneself: Participants will go through a self-discovery process to better understand their strengths and limitations, which will contribute to the bridging of self-knowledge and self-leadership.
Leading Others: Participants will explore different ways of motivating and influencing staff, superiors and colleagues. They will learn how to keep up the motivation in the people around them and how they can transform negativity into a source of creativity as well as “demanding” stakeholders into “committed” ones.
Managing Successful Programmes: Coverage includes how to drive a strategy-driven programme design and review process, how to manage different performance layers, how to interlink stakeholder expectations and satisfaction with the impact and relevance agendas, as well as how to capture opportunities of disruptive innovation.
3 STREAM COHORTS – 1 INFLUENTIAL PEER NETWORK
Selectivity: A maximum of 20 participants will be admitted to each stream. A rigorous and challenging admission process will ensure that peer-to-peer interaction in the Executive Academy will be meaningful and ability-enhancing for all participants.
Professional Certificate: The successful completion of the Executive Academy will be rewarded with a professional certificate issued by EFMD Global Network, a leading qualification for Teaching & Learning Executives globally.
Networking: EFMD Global Network will enable graduates to stay connected. Regular alumni activities and the ability to interact with alumni across all streams will enable them to keep abreast with teaching & learning developments globally.
