Georgetown and ESADE Launch Global Managers Program
Modeled after the success of the Georgetown-ESADE Global Executive MBA, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business has again partnered with Spain’s ESADE Business School to offer the new Global Advanced Management Program (GAMP) starting in November 2011. Program participants will earn a global advanced management certificate after taking classes in Madrid, SÃ£o Paulo, and Washington, D.C.
GAMP will combine each school’s strengths to educate global executives in the areas of globalization and geopolitics, global strategies, and leadership, a statement announcing the agreement explains. The program is geared for executives interested in creating a global professional network, gaining knowledge of international markets, and developing competencies needed for a successful career in a competitive and globalized economy.
“Just as the global economy continues to evolve, today’s executives must master the concepts, techniques, tools, and subjects most relevant to managing their businesses across borders,” says Paul Almeida, senior associate dean for executive education at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business and co-director of GAMP.
“The Global Advanced Management Program will prepare executives to think globally and compete strategically through a powerful leadership model based on collaboration, innovation, and internationalization.”
The Global Advanced Management Program will be offered through a modular three-week program where participants meet for six consecutive days every other month. In addition to professors from each business school, faculty from Georgetown’s Walsh School of Foreign Service will add a geopolitical lens to the curriculum.
Executives enrolled in GAMP’s first edition will study the global business environment in Washington, D.C.; global marketing strategy and management in SÃ£o Paulo, Brazil; and leadership and decision-making in Madrid, Spain. Those wishing to focus on finance can enroll in the second edition of the program, which spends its second module in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to study global strategy and management of finance.
“This program combines the expertise found at Georgetown University and ESADE Business School to provide a world-class educational opportunity designed for today’s global executives,” says Juame Hugas, executive director of executive education at ESADE Business School.
“In addition to classroom learning, this program offers unparalleled personal leadership coaching and engagement with the business communities in each country.”
