EXECUTIVE EDUCATION WITH A DIFFERENCE

Business today face challenges that are complex, global and often appear intractable. The speed and scale of change are shaking traditional economics and management theories at their core. Fresh ideas are needed to challenge business orthodoxy and help companies achieve sustainable growth.

The Global Leaders Programme (GLP) is internationally recognised for its intellectual rigour, beyond-classroom methodology and its output driven approach to leadership development.


MODULE ONE: Challenging Business Orthodoxy

Module One facilitates a greater awareness of the drivers of change in today's world, engaging participants in candid discussions and debates related to the role of business in society and the changing realities in different political and economic systems. 

The core curriculum in Module One conveys a new narrative on economic development and the role of different sectors in society. The course paints a vivid picture of the world we live in based on facts, figures and examples and asks hard questions about the nature of globalisation. It presents the need to reshape economic systems and for the roles of government, business, civil society and media in our societies to be more aligned with our new realities. Core topics include:

Participants are encouraged to think critically about pricing, externalities, the role of the state and ethical dilemmas in business, among other topics as well as to question their own assumptions and challenge conventional notions of global business.

MODULE TWO: Field Project in Cambodia

Agriculture remains the lifeblood of most ASEAN economies, with 100 million smallholder farmers dominating Southeast Asia’s agricultural landscape. Redesigning business models that promote inclusive value chains while providing diversified agricultural output, improved post-harvest processing, and easier access to better quality seeds and inputs, is the key focus of governments and businesses in the region.

Considered a staple in many countries and a trendy “superfood” in others, coconuts have surged in popularity in the last decade and are present in everything from housing materials and cosmetics to food, furniture and fuels. Demand for coconut-related products is growing approximately 10% annually whilst the global coconut output is only growing at 3% yearly.

Module Two of the Global Leaders Programme integrates business planning sessions and in-country site visits with the application of participants’ leadership skills in order to produce a valuable output for local partners.

Working with Soma Group, participants on the GLP will explore ways for Cambodia to capture the opportunitiesrelated to the coconut sector by making recommendations on ways to integrate smallholder farmers, village-level processing facilities and larger plantations, thereby contributing to the country’s nascent coconut sector.
