Take your leadership to the next level

Asper’s Executive Education programs designed for leaders and aspiring leaders.

October 5, 2020 — 

If you’re a senior manager or Director with leadership aspirations or have found yourself in a role with new or increasing responsibilities, Executive Education at the Asper School of Business will provide you the skills you need to succeed. 
With an appreciation of the unique needs of today’s business and community leaders, Executive Education’s flagship Advanced Program in Management, Leadership, and Strategy has been designed to fast-track your leadership and strategy skills in just ten days. Divided into four sections, lasting two to three days each, the program provides the opportunity to step away from your daily routine and focus on your career goals.
For anyone who has considered pursuing an MBA, the Advanced Program counts as 4.5 credits towards the completion of an Asper MBA. So not only will you have the opportunity to develop your leadership skills and experience, you will also learn from top-ranked MBA faculty and business professionals, providing you a taste of what it’s like to be an MBA student. 
More than 750 leaders from business, government and Indigenous organizations and communities have already taken the Advanced Program. Here’s what they have to say:
