Oversight, guidance, and integrity

Our President is Jean-François Manzoni. The President is appointed by the Supervisory Board. Under his leadership, the Executive Committee proposes IMD’s business goals, financial targets, and annual budgets within the strategic guidelines agreed with the Supervisory Board.

The President proposes the structure and composition of his Executive Committee. He regularly informs the Supervisory Board about developments, issues, actions, and results and he delivers an annual activity report to the Foundation Board.

The Foundation Board is our ultimate governing body. Together with the Supervisory Board, it ensures that IMD remains relevant to the evolving needs of the global corporate community. These two boards are comprised of key stakeholders – including CEOs from companies with which IMD has strong learning partnerships, leaders of academic institutions, alumni, and faculty.
