Algemene informatie

In a world that is changing continuously and at a rapid pace, with implications at all levels – economic, political, socio-demographic – intertwining with digital transformation and the development of artificial intelligence, top managers find themselves facing increasingly complex and multifaceted challenges. In this context, to stay relevant and drive positive change, it becomes essential for them to broaden their perspectives and approach the new challenges from unique angles, redefining their leadership skills and influencing abilities. Through the contributions of highly prominent speakers, SDA Bocconi’s new Global Leaders Program engages participants into economically and geopolitically significant topics that are central to the contemporary discourse, at the same time focusing on the most pressing managerial issues related to digital and sustainable transformations. The program draws its strength from the combination of robust managerial knowledge and one-to-one interactions with peers in other industries, creating a diverse ecosystem that engages senior executives in a high-profile multicultural network. Equally integral to the program is the opportunity to immerse in the culture and environment of Italian excellence, by directly experiencing realms of excellence in art, culture, design and fashion.

Top managers must broaden their perspectives and approach new challenges from unique angles, redefining their leadership skills and ability to influence.


The program is for a selected pool of senior executives from around the world with significant experience in management positions one or two levels from the CEO at large organizations, or in the C-suite level of SMEs. The goal is to build together a diverse, inclusive and high-profile environment.

Experiential moments
Experiential opportunities are a pivotal aspect of the program, affording participants the privilege of immersing themselves in domains where Italy has undeniably excelled and made a global impact. These encompass a spectrum of disciplines, ranging from sports and culture to design and gastronomy. Such immersive experiences include educational sessions with key figures in the sport world and renowned chefs, alongside privileged access to iconic venues within the fashion industry and visits to masterpieces of Italian art. These encounters represent an exclusive privilege reserved solely for program participants.


The course endeavors to serve as a unique opportunity for participants to devote some time to embrace different angles to navigate into not-linear scenarios and organizations through an unconventional learning experience. The program is designed to create a space for individuals to step back from their daily activities, engaging in a process of questioning their own beliefs and developing fresh perspectives through meaningful engagement with distinguished academics, as well as continuous dialogue with their fellow participants.
