Multi-module Program

St.Gallen Management & Leadership Program | English

What challenges will managers be faced with in the future, and how can these be met? In answer to these questions, we have established our St.Gallen’s Management & Leadership Program. Together we will embark on a learning journey that will support you to develop as a person and thus as a leader.
Whoever takes on a management role cannot rely on experience and routine alone, but also needs to deal with new, complex, unfamiliar situations. More than ever, managers need a reliable navigation system to refine their skills. The program provides this navigation system with topics ranging from strategic competence to leadership skills, cultural transformation and personal excellence. The modules of the three-part program are based on St.Gallen’s management teaching principles, combined with current management approaches. The program also focusses on analyzing and developing your own leadership personality and management behavior.

«The training at Management School St.Gallen was top notch - they really go in the leadership rolls, how to deal with employees and how to run a business. The course was almost a one on one session and they go into how to improve your leadership role and how to improve your business. In my case how to be a better CEO and how to improve the management. I was just starting at that time and one year later it really has helped me and the company to be successful - even in this pandemic time.»
