Information Session Executive Education

Traditional management approaches have become obsolete in today’s dynamic and complex world. To remain competitive, businesses and organizations have to creatively reinvent their strategies, structures, and practices. They have to come up with answers to unknown questions. The SBE Management Division proudly offers four new Executive Programs, each program preparing participants to be ready for the future.

On Wednesday June 27th, the SBE Management Division organizes an information session to introduce these programs. The first program ‘Digital Innovation and Transformation’ offers a one year trajectory (Dutch) during which participants are familiarized with formulating and executing digital strategies. The second program called ‘Board Dynamics’ provides answers to questions such as how to create a high-performing board and how to deal with the ‘unsaid’ during board meetings.


 The third and fourth program focus on strategic and organizational transformation. Transformative management comprises eight (optional) modules which acquaint participants with viable strategies within the context of globalization, digitalization, collaboration, and responsible leadership. The program Leading Corporate Transformation offers a high-density program of four days during which participants will be familiarized with drivers of corporate transformation.

The session will be guided by professor Hans Berends, Brian Tjemkes, Svetlana Khapova, and Marilieke Engbers.

Time: 18:00 till 20:30.
Location: VU Amsterdam
