"Purposeful communication is a relevant strategic tool for all leaders. In my course we approach communication holistically and understand it’s strategic value for leaders. Persuasive communication skills not only fire up employees and lead them to get work done, but also improve the capacity of leaders to negotiate effectively with stakeholders. "

"I observe that optimizing organization design to improve group decisions is an untapped source of value in most companies. In my lecture I focus on good versus bad decisions and I provide tools to make “good decisions”. And I would further emphasize that it is an exciting topic of increasing importance as AIs and humans jointly adapt to each other. "
Prof. Dr. Thorbjørn Knudsen, Professor for Strategic Organisation, FS
"Managers face multiple dependencies on external influences, especially ever new regulatory requirements. In my lecture we will focus on these dependencies and discuss strategies to cope with them.

As a participant you will benefit from the combination of strategic concepts and practically experienced examples, especially in crisis management."

With my lecture I like to convey that any good strategy needs to be translated into sound financial decisions. My aim of the lecture of the AMP programme is to be accessible also to managers that so far had little to do with corporate finance. Participants in my lecture will benefit from getting a hands-on knowledge in corporate finance and ESG. "
Prof. Dr. Zacharias Sautner, Professor of Finance, FS

Prof. Dr. Jochen Schlapp, Associate Professor of Operations and Technology Management, FS
"Many companies claim to be customer-centric, but few truly are. During the AMP we will focus on understanding how creating value for and from customers are complements and not opposites and how this is key to successful customer-centric management."

The Frankfurt School Advanced Management Programme is an accelerated learning journey for the senior leaders who want to shape tomorrow. The programme consists of four compact modules on our campus in Frankfurt and a “Global Leadership Series” of short online events with prolific expert speakers from around the world.
The last module concludes with a graduation ceremony and a gala dinner. Your partners and other significant others are welcome to join. Details will be announced in due time.
The programme is held in English.
Discovering 21st Century Management (Module 1)
The 21st century offers many unprecedented challenges for businesses and top executives. Societal, geopolitical, environmental, and technological disruptions are chasing each other at an ever-increasing pace. Get up to date, equip yourself with critical insights about the most important forces and trends, and start creating the agenda for yourself and your company.
Building Future Businesses (Module 2)
Senior executives like you are entrusted with making the critical decisions that shape the future of your company, industry or even economy. Whether overall strategy, disruptive competitive moves, innovative business models, new organisational forms, operational designs, or creative solutions – the responsibility rests with you. How can you make the right choices and build strong and trendsetting businesses today that will thrive tomorrow?
Transforming People and Organisations (Module 3)
Whether you lead in a traditional or emerging industry, in a mature company or a young start-up – a rapidly changing environment requires every executive to ask the hard questions and rethink their organisation. The answers to these questions will likely initiate the difficult and demanding journey of simultaneous change and transformation on many fronts – people and culture, supply chain and operations, governance and finance, data and digitalisation, to name a few. What are the essential personal competencies and organisational competencies? What does the transformation of people and organisations entail?
Creating Sustainable Value (Module 4)
Responsible management and stakeholder capitalism entail that executive goal systems increasingly include social and environmental dimensions in addition to financial results and economic value. At the same time, leading diverse stakeholders and managing the organisation towards achieving these goals is not becoming any easier in the proverbial VUCA world. How can you be the strategic leader who drives sustainable value with self-aware, high-performance leadership and by aligning external and internal stakeholders, driving triple-bottom-line business performance, and steering your organisation through the inevitable ups and downs?
You will receive a certificate of completion. There will be no examinations.
