EMBA Programs in Canada 2017. You can see the basic layout of the program below. The core is a set of five modules of 10 days each that take place over 16 months, organized by managerial mindsets. Accompanying these are all kinds of intriguing activities, in the class and out: Co-coaching, Friendly Consulting, Dedicated Tables, Managerial Exchanges, and Impact Teams. Those who wish to receive the masters in management degree, beyond the IMPM Certificate, write a Final Paper that allows them to probe more deeply into some issue of key concern. These elements are described below. THE FIVE MINDSETS MODULE 1 MANAGING SELF: THE REFLECTIVE MINDSET The Lake District of northern England, far from the hectic pace of managing, is the perfect setting for thoughtful reflection on yourself and your experiences as a manager. Participants experience The Nature of Engaging Management (Henry Mintzberg), Ethics and Virtue within the Organization (Lucas Introna), and in the footsteps of Woodworth before undertaking a cultural audit of a British company. The module is developed and delivered by leading faculty at the Lancaster University School of Management, consistently ranked among the top research school in the UK. MODULE 2 MANAGING ORGANIZATIONS: THE ANALYTIC MINDSET We move to Montreal, one of North America's most engaging cities, where Canada's foremost university, McGill, hosts the second module, on the analytic mindset. Sessions on big data, finance, and marketing, ect. focus on developing an understanding of analysis beyond techniques —and away from both "extinction by instinct" and "paralysis by analysis". Estelle Metayer takes the class to the hidden web, and Henry Mintzberg contrasts adhocracies with bureaucracies and emergent strategies with deliberate ones. MODULE 3 MANAGING RELATIONSHIPS: THE COLLABORATIVE MINDSET At Renmin, one of China's most prestigious universities, the class explores collaboration in all of its aspects: in teams, alliances, and with governments ect. Participants explore a uniquely Chinese perspective on the world of business, drawing on the traditional process of Guanxi to understand the importance of Harmony and Balance. They are also exposed to urban and rural development and sustainability in China(Wen Tiejun). MODULE 4 MANAGING CHANGE: THE ACTION MINDSET In Rio de Janeiro, at EPABE/FGV, Brazil's renowned school of administration, the class considers not only managing change, but also managing continuity. There is no better place than Rio to contrast the "Why Not?" mentality of people who create change with the more common "Why?" mentality. Visits to local organizations and companies illustrate how culture and power affect trust and values in the workplace.(Alexandre Faria). MODULE 5 MANAGING CONTEXT: THE WORLDLY MINDSET India is another world. This is the place to learn about other people's worlds in order to better understand our own. This module, at the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore, ranked the best business school in Central Asia, delves into all sides of the world around the enterprise: from financial markets and consumer behavior, championing and sustaining business growth (S. Raghunath), to stakeholder relationships and cultural differences. The experience comes alive through visits to different places that illustrate India's diversity, from a food market to a software campus, separated by just a few kilometers and several centuries. DEDICATED TABLES We have a 50:50 rule in the IMPM: half the time over to you on your agendas. You sit at roundtables, to share your experiences and learn with your peers. Most of the time you are in mixed groups, to gain from the diversity of experiences. But now we also have dedicated tables, where you can spend some of the discussion time with related managers. You might join a table of entrepreneurs or family-business owners, or you might come to the program with colleagues from your industry or your own company. (LG and Lufthansa have been sending teams of managers for almost all of our twenty years.) FRIENDLY CONSULTING Engaging managers means more than just doing workshops and discussing ideas. The managers of the IMPM bring in concerns from their own work, to benefit from the experience of their colleagues. This is ongoing in the program—around the tables all the time. But it is now institutionalized in a process we call friendly consulting, where small teams of your colleagues work with you on your concerns. This has become one of the highlights of the program. REFLECTION PAPERS AND PEER COACHING Learning from each other and the faculty does not stay in the classroom. After each module (except the last), you write a reflection paper. This is not an academic paper: you review what particularly struck you at the module and relate it your own needs—personal - at your job, or in your organization. During this process of writing, you connect with a team of colleagues, and a faculty tutor, who work with you to make these papers as helpful as they can possible be. We call this peer coaching. MANAGERIAL EXCHANGE Midway in the program, you pair up with a colleague and spend the better part of a week as host and as visitor at each other's workplace. This process of observing another manager at work and providing feedback is simple yet powerful. It is quite amazing what has come out of these exchanges. "When visiting with one of my LG colleagues in Korea, I realized that our company is vulnerable to a disruptive technology. As a result we launched a startup company together with a top IT university in Brazil. We believe this will save our company." Gustavo Miotti, Board Chair, Soprano Eletrometalugica Ltd., Brazil IMPACT TEAMS "Never send a changed person back to an unchanged organization." Yet that is what almost all development programs do. We have changed that. You are given the opportunity, with our guidance and supporting materials, to designate an impact team back at work, of colleagues or reports, to help you carry your learning into the organization. In effect, these people do the IMPM virtually. You debrief your team after each module, and discuss how to carry use the learning for constructive change. Thus does management development become organization development. And thus does education that may seem pricy to an HR department become an astute investment for the organization—in training several managers for the price of one and in the profound changes that they can champion. Some companies send teams to the IMPM to work on a key issue. I coached my team as I learned. I grew my team as I was growing. As I went through the modules, I took the basic principles and they were so appreciated by my team at work that they kept on asking, "When are you going to the next module?" Daniel Smedo, VP and General Manager, Metro Supply Chain Group, Canada WELCOMING EXPERIENCED CANDIDATES If you are seeking an international focus to your career, have more than 10 years of work experience with substantial and relevant managerial experience then the IMPM is for you. The entire IMPM premise is based on sharing experiences and insights with peers and participants are therefore typically 35–55 years of age. IMPM participants are either sponsored by their company; companies such as Lufthansa, BNDES and LG have been sending managers for years or are individuals who have decided that the philosophy and outcomes from the program are what they need to move forward in their career or organization. Dedicated tables are available for individuals or teams who want to join others from similar types of organizations. Entrepreneurs, members of family owned businesses, professionals from different fields will spend time with peers and learn from those with similar challenges. Attending as part of a company team, allows managers to learn about the diversity that exists within their organization. Through the sharing of experiences, these team members gain a deeper understanding of how the entire organization works and are in a good position to implement changes. [-]

Why take an Executive MBA in Financial Services and Insurance? The MBA in Financial Services and Insurance (MBA-FSI) is an international, executive MBA programme, designed for participants with high potential to achieve top executive functions in financial services firms. No other established programme at an executive MBA level can claim to address the banking, as well as the (re)insurance, and the investment industry from an international and holistic perspective. The MBA-FSI provides a tremendous added value for you, as a financial services professional, because of its: Innovative programme, focusing on topics with high strategic value We deal with the latest developments in management and apply them to the financial services industry. Besides this, we also tackle topics specific to the industry such as the impact of new regulations in banking and insurance and the impact of the financial crisis. Unique pooling of excellence, available throughout the world This programme is the result of a long-term collaboration between three universities with an excellent reputation in the management of financial services firms – each with their own area of expertise, complemented by renowned academic and business specialists from around the world. Truly international profile in all its aspects Participants, course locations, core faculty and guest speakers all have an international dimension, which guarantees a broadening of your personal horizon. Modern learning approach We provide an optimal mixture between teaching of theoretical frameworks, case studies, guest speakers, company visits, business simulations and practical projects and assignments. On top of that, our courses are entirely ran on iPad. This means that no more paper and binders need to be carried along. Digital delivery of course materials enables participants to carry all their course materials with them to have them available when they need them. Finally the iPad delivery also enables extra and richer interactivity, both in class and afterwards. Combination of learning and working The MBA-FSI covers a period of 22 months (including graduation), in which two-week residential modules of classes, group work, etc. are followed by self-study periods during which assignments (e.g. literature, case-preparation, thesis, etc.) have to be completed while you continue working. In this way, the theory learned is applied immediately into your own working environment. Programme Approach During the programme, general management knowledge and skills are combined with in-depth insights into the business economics of the financial sector. In order to achieve this goal, each module is structured on the basis of two perspectives. Academic Perspective The academic perspective offers participants the necessary frameworks and tools to tackle the challenges of a modern organisation. In each module participants acquire a firm understanding of relevant management skills in different domains, including strategic management, marketing, human resources and organizational behaviour, accounting and finance, operations and technology, corporate governance, risk management and other issues. Business Perspective Secondly, the MBA-FSI provides participants with insights into the financial services industry. The focus is on the different sub-sectors of the financial services sector: banking, insurance and investment. We discuss the main trends taking place in the different industries and translate the academic and theoretical frameworks to the financial services industry. Taking these two perspectives into account, this programme provides high potentials with the necessary training to pursue a successful career in today’s fast changing financial services sector. Curriculum During the six residential modules of the programme, participants acquire a firm understanding of the most recent developments in the different management disciplines. At the same time, participants learn to apply the management frameworks to their own financial institution. It’s this application of general concepts to the financial services industry that sets the MBA-FSI apart from general MBA programmes.

EMBA in Occupational Health and Safety Leadership

Upcoming Start Dates: January 6, March 3

Welcome to Canada’s first Executive MBA in Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) Leadership! This visionary new program has been jointly developed and is supported by the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE).  *CSSE CHSC-certified members will be granted a 1-course advanced standing, and are not required to take the Level B elective.

Why This Program Is Needed

The role of the occupational health and safety (OHS) unit in an organization has been steadily and significantly rising in prominence over the last several decades, in many organizations being transferred into the Operations function. This is well-deserved, as the evidence clearly indicates that well-designed and well-managed OHS programs contribute to a much healthier, more satisfied and more productive workforce, coincidentally with a significant financial upside for the organization. However, many, if not most, managers of OHS units have risen to their management positions without any prior post-secondary education in management, and face the dual challenges of a potential performance deficit, and reduced probability of promotion into executive ranks. Thus, this program has been developed to address these challenges, by improving the post-secondary educational landscape for upwardly-mobile OHS managers and executives.  ... [-]

EMBA in Social Enterprise Leadership

Upcoming Start Dates: October 28, January 6

Why this program is needed 

A Social Enterprise (SE) is generally understood to be a business operated or owned by a non-profit organization, established at least partly to supplement its public funding and charitable donations. The growth of the Social Enterprise sector is strong, and the need for capable and seasoned leaders even stronger. But leading such businesses is arguably more complex than leading a for-profit business - rather than having a single focus on profitability, Social Enterprise executives must achieve a “blended value” return on investment, balancing sustainable profitability with a social mission. Thus, in response to the growing demand for SE leaders, and the complexity of SE leadership, our online Executive MBA program has been developed with the advice of some of Canada’s leading practitioners to meet the sector’s specific needs....

EMBA in Innovation Leadership

Upcoming Start Dates October 28, January 6

Why This Program Is Needed 

In today's global business environment, every part of an organization must run in perfect alignment and at peak efficiency in order to meet the demands imposed by relentless global competitors. However, the same organization must also be able to regenerate itself to seek bold new directions that offer new opportunities for motivation and growth, be they new product categories, new markets, new partnerships, new processes, or new organizational structures. For example, think of Apple's foray into portable MP3 music players with their famous iPod, which represented a substantial departure from their main lines of computer hardware and software; yet which, successfully done, garnered over 90% share of the MP3 market within three years of its launch, at premium prices. ...

EMBA (Executive MBA) in Global Leadership

Upcoming Start Dates October 28, January 6

Why This Program Is Needed 

It is imperative that the leadership teams of virtually every company must collectively recognize that they are managing their organization in a complex global network of suppliers, competitors, partners and customers - with all of the risks and opportunities entailed. In our view, this global context is not to be feared. Rather, it must be embraced, and our leadership and management teams must be educated and prepared accordingly.
