How We Teach

Successful leadership today requires an understanding of the pressing challenges of the global economy.

People and ideas move from country to country with unprecedented speed. Work teams include colleagues from varied backgrounds—some or all connecting virtually from far-flung corners. And you as a leader have to see the big picture and to work across industries and sectors to tackle the challenges of an interconnected world. Yale’s global reach and wide-ranging understanding of markets and organizations will give you the perspective you need.

Tailored to Your Needs

We begin the process of program development (in both custom and open enrollment programs) with a granular understanding of the challenges in your company or industry. In the case of custom programs, faculty and staff work closely with company leaders to tailor a program that brings Yale’s expertise to bear on specific strategic questions. Our open programs arise out of deep and ongoing faculty engagement with industry leaders and top companies. This means that our sessions are always relevant to your needs as you position yourself and your organization for the future.
