Learning Goals

A supportive learning environment is created as participants engage with faculty and peers. Throughout the journey they unlearn, reflect, and redefine their boundaries. The critical learning outcomes in the programme will focus on.

Leadership Skills

Have heightened awareness of what it takes to exercise effective leadership at senior levels through key initiatives, effective execution, influencing, inspiring and empowering people and managing change.

Critical and Integrating Thinking

Demonstrate an ability to identify the central problem/issue, despite limited or overwhelming information, draw and assess recommendations using a perspective that integrates both functional (i.e. business functions) and relevant external information, and deploy them effectively to solve business problems.


The programme starts with online preparatory courses that form the foundation for future courses.

Online Preparatory Modules

Online pre-term modules created by ISB faculty to refresh knowledge of quantitative analysis, accounting, and finance.

Pre-Course Reading Material

Pre-course reading materials which are in the form of text books, cases, articles etc. will be made available to all participants in advance. Participants are expected to spend 8 to 10 hours per week studying these materials before they come for classes each term. Online assessments and pre-course projects are also incorporated into the programme to ensure academic rigour.
