Emerging markets, such as Africa, have VUCA environments: volatile, unpredictable, complex and ambiguous. To reach the very top of your leadership career in VUCA environments, you must transform the way you see things, have the desire to be challenged, to explore new ideas and to experiment to deliver new customer value. This means that you need to develop an exponential mindset and perspectives that go beyond traditional knowledge offered in ordinary EMBAs.

Our EMBA is focused on the challenges and opportunities associated with managing and leading in emerging markets. It is created for aspiring leaders who want to develop bold foresight – a peripheral vision to see things that others do not see; creative insight – to see the same things others see but to think and experiment differently; challenging cross-sight – to be opened-minded with a desire to be challenged by cross-functional and multi-disciplinary ideas, and have unadulterated hindsight – to use experience to explore new opportunities rather than to defend the status quo.

We have combined Swiss Excellence in business education with emerging markets relevance to create a program that is practical, project-based and taught by experienced professors and business leaders; a program that invites you to examine issues about managing and leading in emerging markets at a deeper level.

The program provides a unique opportunity to immerse in Ghana and three other countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. You will meet business leaders and professors with local knowledge and insights. You will gain broad exposure to a variety of executive perspectives and an opportunity to look in-depth at the management and leadership challenges and opportunities. This local immersive experience helps you to go beyond conventional thinking to develop a more holistic perspective for leading in emerging markets.
