Accompanying these are all kinds of intriguing activities, in the class and out: Co-coaching, Friendly Consulting, Dedicated Tables, Managerial Exchanges, and Impact Teams. [+]

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. [-]

Team building, communication, motivation, and decision-making skills are stressed throughout the curriculum. The program is structured to accommodate the active schedules of managers and administrators.

Courses are grouped into three segments: 21 credit functional tier 12 credit integrative tier 12 credit behavioral tier The program provides a strong functional core that gives students specific technical expertise in economics, accounting, management, marketing, finance, statistics and computer usage. The integrative tier insures that students understand how the entire organization functions and the interrelationship of the organization with its environment. The behavioral tier helps students learn about the consequences of their personal management style and to develop more effective methods of motivating the people they manage. Collectively, the courses of study provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary for dealing with the new and complex problems and challenges that today's managers face in our rapidly changing society and world. As members of this program, students attend classes with other professionals, from a wide range of industries, and share their experiences and perceptions. Throughout the program students remain together as a cohort group and take their courses in a prescribed sequence. The curriculum employs both traditional and leading-edge technologies in delivering management education. Methods of instruction include: Traditional lectures and class discussions Case studies Advanced computer simulations Experiential exercises A unique feature of the program is the use of a large-scale behavioral simulation. Participants in the simulation assume specific managerial roles in a fictitious organization and are given feedback on their use of strategic leadership skills and their ability to influence change in their organizations. Please be noted that the Texas Instrument BA II Plus and a PC with Microsoft Office are required for all. International Trip As part of their program, students will participate in a Global Competitive Business Study related to their studies in international business and the business-government relationship. This project is a one-week program in the major business centers of one or two foreign countries. Since 1999, the project has taken place in England, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Ireland, France, Belgium, Greece, and the Netherlands. Class Schedule Classes are normally scheduled on Saturdays (8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.), for three semesters during the year. No classes will be offered on holidays or during August. Such a schedule gives students the opportunity to attend classes only on weekends and imposes minimum interruptions in their work and personal activities. Courses are taken in a prescribed sequence.

Global MBA - A New Economy “We need to reinvent economy, not merely restore it. The sustaining new economy is something coming from within, something governed by your inner being. Something that makes us care for each other, for the natural world and for the future.” Elio D’Anna, Founder and President of the European School of Economics During times of recession and austerity, firms tend to optimize their own resources by reconfiguring their organizational structure and requalifying or converting their own personnel. Likewise, illuminated individuals today are avidly exploring, moving and reinventing their skill set in order to face the impending challenges of a fast-changing society.
