How you learn

Maximise your learning through targeted teaching

Before you start the programme you use an organisational survey to pinpoint areas of high leverage to strengthen your strategic execution capability. The incisive results underpin your journey through the programme, enabling you to hone your targeted learning and address your individual strategy execution gaps through co-consulting sessions.

You develop a bespoke strategy execution plan around the programme framework and translate your new practical expertise into concrete steps and systematic processes, translating insight into action for your organisation.


Real-life case studies

Learn from international case studies and see where businesses have excelled or failed in strategy execution. You explore which criteria measure value creation, what factors make and maintain industry leadership, how clarifying your strategy and applying simple rules drives execution and performance.


Inspiring guest speakers

Gain business strategy insight by learning from the experiences of industry practitioners. Past speakers include Greg Walters, Global Chief Operating Officer for Baker & McKenzie (the world’s largest law firm), Gary Keegan, Director of High Performance Management at the Irish Institute of Sport, and Sabine Vinck, the School’s Associate Dean.


A global view

Class debates and group discussions are a rich source of learning with knowledge and experience brought to you from every corner of the world. Put your newly honed ideas and strategy to the test and be challenged by your tutors and peers.
