INDUSTRY TRENDS

WORKING FROM HOME

With changing attitudes among millennials and a global pandemic, working from home has become a reality for many. This presents both advantages and a number of management challenges. Although overheads will be reduced and employees are generally happier, virtual leadership can make it difficult to boost productivity and keep a distinct company culture. Managers must embrace new best practices and face the change head-on to ensure a prosperous new normal for all.

ETHICAL CORPORATE PRACTICES

Companies today must live up to the values they claim to have, especially when it comes to inclusion and sustainability. Beyond being the right choice ethically, companies are beginning to realise that it can have a positive impact on their bottom line. To achieve this, companies need leaders who can balance performance and social responsibility—as can be seen with IE University’s sustainability aims and our wide variety of student-led organizations.

TECH ADVANCES AND AI

Sustained business success is increasingly tied to a company’s ability to leverage technology and data. With the wave of disruptive technology still in full flow across the business world, this means that leaders able to leverage the power of technology are in demand. By combining these abilities with well-honed management skills, these individuals can help impact business results as we head into a new era.

"It is a leading business school in Europe with the program itself selected as the best online program in the world, and the blended methodology format allows for a very flexible schedule while also creating the possibility of having an extremely international cohort."
