Target group and prerequisites
Global Leader is a flexible general management training program designed to meet the different needs of participants. The program consists of six study modules, two of which can be customized according to your own development needs and interests. You can also choose the starting time for your studies from five different options: January, April, May, September, and November. The duration of the studies is flexible, and the entire program can be completed within 1–2 years.
The four compulsory modules deal with Financial Decision-Making, Global Strategy, Strategic Marketing Management, and Leading Change. All topics are looked at from a helicopter perspective, paying special attention to what is relevant and interesting from a leader’s point of view in a global context. You choose two elective modules from the diverse offerings of our MBA programs.
The program provides a variety of tools and a holistic understanding of business management in an international operating environment. You will study with your peers, exchanging experiences and best practices and taking advantage of the diverse background of the other participants, while broadening your professional network. Teaching relies on academic research but is very practical. Numerous exercises will help you apply what you have learned to your own work, benefitting you, your team, and your organization in no time.
If you are interested in completing only one or the four core modules within the Global Leader program – Financial Decision-Making, Global Strategy, Strategic Marketing Management, and Leading Change – or the one elective module on self-leadership, you can enroll as a ‘stand-alone’ participant.
If you want to continue your studies in the Aalto Executive MBA or Aalto MBA programs, you can transfer up to 27 ECTS study credits from the Global Leader program to either of these within five years of completing the credits.
Teaching takes place at Aalto EE's premises in Helsinki.
