The Emerging Leaders Programme (ELP) is an 8-month programme designed to help you fast-track your growth in the early stages of your career as a manager. As you step up in your path towards leadership, this programme builds a firm foundation to power your success in current and future roles.
The Emerging Leaders Programme (ELP) has been specially designed for forward-thinking, high-potential executives with 5 - 10 years of work experience who are seeking to play an expanded role in driving corporate strategy and success. Ideal profiles include:
ISB Executive Education programmes are replete with distinctive teaching methodologies and an intense and challenging learning environment that pushes participants’ learning horizons beyond their pre-existing beliefs. Through lectures from distinguished faculty, local and global case studies, business simulations, and group discussions with extraordinary peers from a broad range of industries, regions, and functions, you will be equipped with the strategies, tools and insights required to transform your thinking and achieve ambitious business objectives. You will return to your organisation, fully ready to apply what you have learned. You will also take with you a rich network of relationships that will enrich your personal and professional lives long after you complete the programme.
Blended Programmes: Combining the best of both worlds with high-impact real-time, synchronous learning as well as self-paced online modules delivered with the same rigour both in-person and virtually.
Candidates will be evaluated to ensure a dynamic and diverse batch profile based on multiple factors, including but not limited to:
We admit candidates to upcoming sessions on a rolling, space-available basis, and encourage you to apply as early as possible to secure your seat in the programme.
Learn how to build the base for advancing your leadership agenda with the skills that allow you to touch and oversee all core areas of the enterprise in a meaningful manner.
In this module, you will also prepare yourself to craft your Action Learning Project (ALP). You will work with faculty and peers to identify and clearly define a business problem with transformative potential. Your faculty mentor will work with you to define problem hypotheses and how you could test them.
Refine two skills crucial to leading in today’s business landscape – the ability to manage people and change effectively, both effected by an unpredictable macro environment.
Attend the first ELP career progression workshop to establish your personal brand. Apply the learnings from the previous module to provide a comprehensive assessment of your business problem and formulate an initial solution for your Action Learning Project (ALP).
Gain the skills necessary to identify new technologies and potential areas of growth and innovation within the organisation, and the strategies and tools essential to deriving maximum value from them.
You will attend focused career progression workshops on networking effectively and crafting your career development plan.
The ELP curriculum makes a shift from traditional business management learning to emphasize aspects that will not only strengthen your business foundations but will also help you lead people and change effectively. Designed to spark self-reflection, innovation, and collaboration, ELP is carefully structured with three integrated modules that will be delivered in a blended format - live virtual sessions, online asynchronous self-paced courses, and campus immersion. The programme spans 8 months requiring you to commit 7-8 hours per week and less than a week away from your workplace.
This blended approach to learning is also designed to provide you with the opportunity to apply the learnings and insights you gain from the programme at work and move forward in your current role.
You will have a unique opportunity to hear from and interact with distinguished industry leaders through focused speaker sessions. These sessions will help expand your repertoire of leadership strategies as you learn how these leaders overcame challenges in their industries, companies, and job functions to drive business outcomes. You will also learn alongside a vibrant community of peers, who hold rich experience across a variety of industries and geographies.
The ELP provides rich experiential learning opportunities. During the programme, you will actively engage in solving a real-world business or leadership challenge in the form of an Action Learning Project (ALP) that is salient to you and draws on the learnings of the programme. Through the ALP, you will develop the ability to apply your new learnings and skills in-between modules and personalise your project plan. You will also connect and collaborate with your ELP peers who can guide you with their unique expertise and experience to steer the solution to your project.
The Career Progression series has been conceived to provide active support to ELP participants to catapult their careers onto a clear, structured path. Equipped with an AI-powered career platform, you will learn to build powerful resumes and enhance your digital profiles and presence. The series also provides three high-impact, interactive workshops that handhold learners towards a transformational professional makeover. Engage in live virtual workshops with a professional career coach to help you maximise your leadership potential.
ISB faculty includes leading academics with credentials and teaching experience from top global business schools as well as accomplished practitioners who have managed large enterprises.
