Program structure

The program is structured around plenary sessions on new topics every morning and dedicated streams - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The streams give you the opportunity to customize the program to your specific needs and interests, by choosing themes you then focus on for the week.

  • Get practical, innovative approaches to complex business challenges
  • Brainstorm in small groups with people who face issues much like yours
  • Apply your learning on the spot as a team: boost team spirit, devise new strategies, leave with an action plan

Our Faculty members are recognized world authorities in their fields. Dividing their time between teaching, research and working with international companies, they remain on top of the latest management trends. You can expect timely, innovative learning activities, materials and content in all IMD programs.
