Thursday, October 6, 2016

If you are not moving, you stand still

– and the same goes for companies and their executives who continually have to develop. Mannaz and Columbia Business School have partnered to help Scandinavian business leaders with their development. Read more about the collaboration and new opportunities for business leaders.

Mannaz has recently partnered with the prestigious IVY League University, Columbia Business School in New York, and now jointly offer the highly attractive: Columbia Executive Programme.

This provides ambitious Scandinavian business leaders with a unique opportunity to develop themselves and their businesses at the highest international level.

The cooperation draws on Mannaz and Columbia Business School’s common vision, striving to always deliver the highest quality and achieve results amongst its participants.

Requested by top Danish companies

Companies such as Novo Nordisk, A. P. Moller – Maersk, Dong, Grundfoss and Danske Bank have previously sent their leaders to New York to participate in this exclusive leadership programme at Columbia Business School. Their leaders are just some of the more than 700 Danish executives and board members who have received the prestigious certificate in management from Columbia Business School.

Past participants have amongst other things said that the programme is:

”(…) the obvious choice to ensure my continuous success as a top-executive. The intensive programmes manage to combine practical experience with relevant theories from the most coveted and competent professors in the world.”
Christian Holm Hansen, CEO, EM Nordic Denmark A/S

“(…) essential for today’s business executive. Our business world is evolving fast, all the more important to educate on the latest business trends. The quality of this course is exceptional and highly recommended.”
Reynir Gislason, Executive President, IFS Group S.A.C.

The Columbia Executive Programme is tailored to meet the needs of Scandinavian business leaders’ challenges, but with an international perspective. The programme consists of practical teaching and the sharing of professional knowledge from one of the world’s most prestigious educational institutions for managers. Leading professors from Columbia Business School share their latest research and expertise in business development and growth. Additionally, the programme provides a ‘deep-dive’ into essential themes such as implementation of strategy, strategic marketing and economics for business leaders.

Even more programmes on the way

Not only does Mannaz now offer the highly attractive Columbia Executive Programme, we are also expanding our executive portfolio with several two-day leadership training programmes, such as Finance for Executives, Business Strategy for Executives and Innovation & Business Development.

Finger on the pulse

All these top executive programmes are facilitated by recognised professors, who master in both theory and practice. They are not just deep in research, but also have experience from the business world and thus have the finger on the beating heart at the core of business.
