Leadership And Strategy In The Age Of Disruption

Leadership & Strategy in the Age of Disruption delves into the various challenges leaders are faced with in a business climate marked by uncertainty, complexity and technological disruption. Leaders are now being challenged to use visionary thinking, make insightful strategic decisions, and guide their teams to success amidst an ever-changing environment. A “business as usual” thinking model is an easy path to follow, but in this program, you will learn why it should never be the only option considered.

Together with the Financial Times, IE has tailored a program where top FT journalists analyze disruptive decisions taken by world leaders for you to gain the insights that, together with the right tools, will help you develop a vision to become the leader in your industry.

"Our lives were turned upside down during the global pandemic, but there are aspects we can control. I chose to join this online program at IE because I believe that continuous learning is essential for self development. The program provided me with strategic tools that can be implemented in my current role, and I learned that we can be agile and resilient during disruptive situations if we turn negatives into positives."
