Where Online
Duration 1 hour 15 minutes

Get a taste of a real IMD interactive classroom and take your decision-making skills to the next level

Are you interested in our Executive MBA or Global Management Foundations program? In this interactive experience led by Professor Arnaud Chevallier, Professor of Strategy, step into a world where uncertainty doesn’t spell chaos, but opportunity.

Let’s face it, if you’ve made it this far, you’re somewhere between a pretty good and an outstanding decision maker. But have you mindfully worked on your decision style? And, when uncertainty increases, how do you adapt? In this session, we’ll look at the perils of not adapting our decision style to the ambient uncertainty. We’ll then look at ways we can best account for various degrees of uncertainty.

Prepare to dive deep in this live learning session:
In this dynamic virtual class, you’ll not just learn but actively participate, engage, and challenge your perspectives. Be prepared to turn your camera on, answer questions, and step out of your comfort zone. You will receive preparatory materials/questions one week before the class, ensuring you’re ready to fully engage and benefit from this interactive experience.

Here’s what you’ll unpack with Professor Chevallier:

  • A look in the mirror: Take a moment to reflect on your decision-making style. It’s about understanding your go-to moves and when it’s time to switch things up.
  • When to pivot: Recognizing those crucial moments that call for a change in how you make decisions.
  • Embracing the unknown: Learn to make uncertainty your ally. We’ll talk about practical ways to handle the unknown confidently in your decisions, especially when the stakes are sky-high.

Following the session, you will have the chance to engage directly with our Program Advisors. They will provide:

  • comprehensive overview of IMD’s Executive MBA.
  • Guidance on how this program can align with your career goals.
  • Answers to your questions about the Executive MBA and our approach to learning.
