Course Description

We will test you, challenge you, encourage you and inspire you. This three-week general management and leadership programme (the ALP) gives seasoned senior executives the opportunity to step back and focus time on themselves in a learning environment second to none. Aside from refreshing their thinking and fine-tuning their leadership agenda, participants will grow from discussions with top faculty members from Cambridge Judge Business School and the wider University of Cambridge. Cambridge Judge Business School offers a distinctive approach born out of the University of Cambridge way. Leading-edge research. With cutting edge academic research, delegates draw upon the latest thinking; as one would expect from one of the foremost universities in the world. More than that, this programme draws upon the unrivalled resources of the wider University, giving participants a depth of insight and experience which is second to none. Smaller class sizes. The University of Cambridge has always emphasised smaller class sizes for maximum interaction and focused effort between world-class faculty and world-class participants. The Business School is no exception. This makes your experience here one of unrivalled quality, relevance, intensity and challenge. Intensity and focus. Smaller class sizes and leading-edge faculty mean focus and intensity. Your programme will may be shorter than elsewhere, but you will likely be stretched as you have never known.

Program Benefits

For you: We will test you, challenge you, encourage you and inspire you. A refreshed leadership mindset – the red line throughout the three weeks IS leadership and cuts through the challenges and opportunities of today’s senior executives. ‘Time out’ – it is not often that you have space just for yourself, without the demands of the office and family. The Cambridge ALP helps you step back and take stock of your professional and personal life. Immersion in cutting edge thinking with leading thinkers, combined with magisterial experience from seasoned leaders from diverse backgrounds. The programme benefits enormously from a multidisciplinary approach to learning. Networking – with other senior executives individually selected for admission. The time spent together is long enough (yet shorter than many other advanced management programmes) to help you make friends and colleagues for life, a group who can call on each other long after the programme. On completing the Cambridge Advanced Leadership Programme you will be eligible to become an associate member of Cambridge Judge Business School’s global network of graduates and business-focused University of Cambridge alumni, faculty and staff. An international perspective – participants and faculty come from all over the world. In the last session of the ALP, 14 nationalities were represented in the class. For your organisation: They will see you come back ready and able to make a difference; an agent of change within the organisation who can cascade your learning to your team and colleagues, They will see you more self-confident, fit to assume greater leadership responsibility, You will be better-networked for enhanced business opportunities internationally.
