The Next Generation program was created to develop young leaders both in family business and family business governance. It is the first in-depth management program in the world that addresses the unique needs and challenges facing the next generation members of global family businesses.

The program builds on more than 25 years of family business education experience, IMD's unparalleled business knowledge, distance-learning as well as the influence of both Eastern and Western management philosophy and business concepts with module 1 taking place in Lausanne and module 2 in Singapore.

It targets two groups: the next generation of leaders working in the family business or about to work in the family business; and the next generation of owners or future owners who will work at any level of the governance structures.

What is unique about the program is the way it explores a variety of management topics from leadership to strategy, industry analysis and marketing to governance - all from the perspective of family businesses. The Next Generation is also an invaluable opportunity to network and exchange with other young leaders from across the world facing similar challenges.
