International Masters Program for Managers

Introduction

THE MANAGERS’ emba: engaging managers beyond administration

In contrast to the use of case studies to develop analytical tools students are expected to "share competences" with each other based on their own experience as managers. ("The Anti-MBA" New York Times 20 May 2012). Participants develop a worldly perspective of management, discover a deeper understanding of themselves and develop new insights that lead to major changes for their organizations.

Since 1996, the International Masters in Practicing Management, co-founded by Henry Mintzberg, has been changing the course of management education and leadership development. This is more than an EMBA that replicates the MBA for experienced people. Beyond administration, the IMPM engages you as an accomplished leader to reflect on your own experience and share insights with colleagues from around the world. Over 16 months, you attend five 10-day modules designed and delivered by leading business schools in Bangalore, Beijing, Lancaster, Montreal, and Rio de Janeiro.

Read about the family of innovations that you will find in no other program: managerial mindsets, friendly consulting, co-coaching, managerial exchanges, impact teams back at work, special seating arrangements, dedicated tables for entrepreneurs and others, and more. Our next class begins on October 25. We welcome applications from experienced managers including those with MBA's and those with no degree. No GMAT required.

AT THE CROSSROADS? HERE IS THE REFRESH BUTTON

This International Masters Program appeals to managers for all sorts of reasons. Many are accomplished leaders who want to enhance the skills they have learned on the job. Some have an MBA or EMBA and feel it's time for management education. Some have accomplished records but no degree. And then there are those who need a refresher, a boost: they have done well but feel stuck where they are. Not in terms of career advancement--some of these are CEOs - but to prepare themselves for the changes ahead.

No program shakes managers out of complacency better than the IMPM. None! We invite you to read the comments on this site, or speak with our graduates. Please don't read this and say: "Good idea. One day I've got to do the IMPM." That's more complacency. If not now, when?

IMPM is delivered in collaboration with 5 schools.

5 schools

Administered by McGill, the program’s five modules take place in Britain, Canada, China, India and Brazil. Each lasts 10 days, is delivered by a different academic partner and is devoted to a different management mind-set.

The first module, beginning October 25, 2015, takes place at Lancaster University Management School and the Lake District. It focuses on self and is fosters the “reflective mind-set.” In England and in every module that follows participants visit local companies and to apply some of the content they have seen. This enables them to better apply the learning when they return to their own organizations.

The participants then meet at McGill University in Montreal, where the focus will be on the “analytic mind-set,” and managing the organization.

Three months later, at the Renmin University School of Business in Beijing, the participants explore ideas of collaboration and cooperation from a Chinese perspective.

At the Fundação Getúlio Vargas in Rio de Janeiro to look at how to manage continuity and change and other aspects of the “action mind-set.”

The last module, in Bangalore at the Indian Institute of Management participants will develop their “worldly mind-set.” The mindset is ‘worldly’ instead of ‘global’ because ‘global” implies one size fits all and we want participants to really appreciate the importance of cultural differences.
