AGBA Executive Education

AGBA’s Executive Development Program (EDP)

In today's complex, fast-paced, competitive environment, executives must be adept at moving quickly out of their comfort zones to build new capabilities. AGBA’s different Executive Development Programs (EDPs) in different areas prepare fast-track leaders to move from mastery of one focused area to success in a broader role. During intense and transformative time-frames, you will expand your business acumen in key areas as you benefit from the expertise of global participants from a wide variety of industries, functional areas, cultures, and geographical regions.

The knowledge you gain from group discussions led by AGBA faculty, a competitive strategy simulation that dramatizes the connection between management decisions and business results, and peer mentoring will have immediate relevance and impact when you are back on the job.

AGBA’s different Executive Development Programs (AGBA-EDPs) are designed to increase the business skills and leadership capabilities of managers who lead key parts of the business and form the pool of future top leadership of the organization. AGBA – EDPs use multidimensional approach of lectures, small/large group discussion, case study, role playing, networking opportunities, and a strategy simulation to provide new insights and give you opportunities to apply them.

A team of AGBA faculty and experts, from diverse business disciplines, provide in-depth knowledge in core business areas including finance, strategy, leadership, marketing, organizational dynamics, entrepreneurship, and globalization. Class sessions are designed to capture the years of experience in the room.

AGBA’s Different Executive Development Programs (such as AGBA’s Mini-MBA) are designed for successful functional, country, or unit managers preparing to take on broader responsibilities that require leading outside their areas of education and experience.

Participants represent many cultures and regions.
