Comprehensive Leadership Development in a Disruptive Age

Although you will already have achieved success as a functional expert, stepping up to general management can be a difficult and potentially risky transition. General managers need a comprehensive toolkit in order to make this transition from specialist to generalist a successful one.

The Transition to General Management programme is our flagship general-management-level programme. Delivered face-to-face and online, it is exclusively designed to equip you with all the skills and knowledge needed for your transition to general management.

The programme will give you the confidence to manage the complexity you will be facing as you develop from a specialist into a generalist. In short, INSEAD’s unique tools and insights will prepare you to succeed in this most difficult of transitions, the point in a manager’s career when they need to quickly expand their knowledge of business.

How you benefit

  • Grounding in the key business disciplines. Leave with an integrated view of business by discovering key linkages across disciplines, thus helping you deliver effective general management decision-making
  • Managing disruption. Gain insights into key issues facing general managers in today’s business environment, such as the challenges of digital disruption
  • Enhanced leadership skills. Achieve increased confidence and managerial impact through our integrated Leadership Development Process
  • Managing for value. Develop a keen understanding of how to “manage for value,” not managing the “metrics”
  • An international learning experience. Benefit from diversity in the classroom and, if you choose, more than one location of study

Learn while you work: access to online learning NEW!

To further embed your learning, the Transition to General Management programme now includes optional online learning. Should they wish, participants are able to choose one of 4 carefully selected INSEAD Open Online Programmes, designed to strengthen their knowledge in a variety of strategic areas essential for general management. The programmes to choose from are:

Whilst the online programme lasts a total of 5 weeks, the time commitment is not as great as the face-to-face programme. Indeed, it requires three to five hours of work a week.

It will take place after the face-to-face component and should be attended within 18 months after completion of the face-to-face modules
