Advanced Management and Leadership Programme

Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University

  • Description
  • Overview

Do you have management experience and a good grasp of the basics? Can you further develop by exposing yourself to new insights, perspectives and ways of working?  Do you want to excel in your current role or prepare for the next step in your career? If you say “yes” to the questions above, the RSM Advanced Management and Leadership Programme will help you take your leadership to the next level. 

This two week management and leadership programme offers you the opportunity to step back from your professional and personal live and dedicate time for yourself in a learning environment. 


By participating in this programme you will

  • Understand the complexities, challenges and opportunities of the global economy;
  • Develop greater self-awareness and confidence in your own leadership style;
  • Enhance and update your knowledge of key business concepts in the areas of strategy, leadership, finance, and marketing;
  • Acquire practical skills you can apply directly in your organisation;
  • Learn new insights from a network of peers;
  • Gain entry to the benefits and privileges of RSM’s Alumni Network.

  • recently appointed general managers
  • senior specialists planning a move to a general management position
  • country managers or heads of a business unit
  • managers responsible for large and complex, multi-disciplinary projects.

The programme starts with a practical focus on your personal and organisational leadership skills. Building on your personal strengths you will further develop your leadership behaviours based on your 360o survey results. The focus is on skills that enable you to quickly unlock the collective intelligence of your followers and to design ways forward using emergent practices rather than only best practices. In addition we will further develop your coaching skills and ways in which you can reconcile business dilemmas.

In the second week we will also focus on the leadership of change and provide you with productive ways through which you can mobilise small and large groups to accelerate change and strategy implementation. Throughout the programme you will develop your skills in coaching, decision-making, critical analysis which help you integrate the subsequent business topics – strategy, advanced finance, and strategic marketing into your own business context. At the end of the programme you will receive the gift of Feed-Forward from your fellow participants which is both a leadership tool and a way to inspire your leadership development.
