The Global CEO Programme Africa commenced on 9th February 2020, at the Strathmore University Business School. This Programme is a first of its kind; in the sense that it is designed for African CEOs, created for African businesses, designed in Africa and delivered in large part in Africa.
This Programme is designed to provide practical frameworks and solutions for the unique African business environment by bringing top African and international scholars together with African leaders and decision-makers.
Further, it aims to equip CEOs and industry leaders within Africa to capitalize on the opportunities within the continent and to master the various challenges within Africa, while still capitalizing on global opportunities and experience.
The Global CEO Programme Africa is a 3-module programme, delivered by Strathmore Business School in Kenya, Lagos Business School in Nigeria and IESE Business School. It is unique in its focus on Africa, its specific challenges, opportunities, and solutions. This will better equip the CEO to lead their organization within Africa and globally to co-create African Leadership solutions and to craft their organizational expansion strategy.
The first module focuses on the Eastern and Southern African perspective by identifying the right frameworks to refine participants’ strategies for growth in Africa and beyond. Finally, we introduce and start to define the leadership role of an ethical African CEO and reflect on leadership legacy.
The second module will take place in April 2020, at Lagos Business School, Nigeria taking a keen focus on understanding the Western Africa business context, organizational expansion strategy, and strategy execution.
The third and final module will take place in June 2020 at IESE Business School’s New York Campus. During this module, the focus will be on a global perspective. Additional areas to be covered include managing innovation and entrepreneurship and digitization in the global context and in the African context.
By merging the expertise of the three top business schools and three global venues, the Global CEO Africa Programme delivers a singular world-class learning experience.
