Executive Board Programme INSEAD

Preparing professionals, executives and managers to be effective board members in a global context

The Executive Board Programme INSEAD is our flagship course in corporate governance and is a unique educational experience that aims to develop board members for the global business scene.

Being a Board Member is an exceptionally important role that resembles no other. Even those who have exelled in senior management face new challenges. But how do you develop new skills and knowledge at this level?

In cooperation with INSEAD we have created a programme – Executive Board Programme INSEAD – to give senior management and board members the insights they need to ensure high performance and value creation in the long and short term.

The Executive Board Programme INSEAD is designed for Scandinavian executives and board members.
