Focus on what matters with IMD's senior general management program

As a senior executive, you’re at the top of your game. Your accumulated experience and knowledge of your business means you can work faster and smarter. But what drives you forward today?

Is a further jump up the corporate ladder what you seek, or is it something beyond, more fundamental and harder to define?

IMD’s Breakthrough Program for Senior Executives (BPSE) will re-energize your ambition and help you find new sources of inspiration as you reconnect with who you are and what ultimately matters.


Develop new “breakthrough ideas” to solve leadership and organizational challenges you face and guide your company’s response to big external changes with confidence. In just 10 days.

Six months after the program, I led a major reorganization of the division I oversee, dealing head on with key technological changes in our markets. IMD helped me translate the theme of breakthrough into my business. It was very powerful.
