Program Structure Overview

Participant Experience

IMD has exceeded my expectations as a transformative experience. It is a one-year boot camp of self-discovery, leadership development, and top-tier management curriculum that makes me feel stronger in my transition back to work. The school has created a safe environment to allow me to try new things, explore myself, and stretch my potential beyond what I was aware of. The international environment has taught me numerous leadership styles that I ignored, despite having worked in a multinational for more than 7 years.
