Harvard Business School to Host Acclaimed General Management Program Comprehensive sixteen-week leadership program will offer a transformative leadership experience Business Wire BOSTON -- November 13, 2013 Beginning in January, Harvard Business School (HBS) will host its renowned General Management Program: Creating Outstanding Business Leaders (GMP). GMP is one of three comprehensive leadership programs designed to deliver a truly transformative experience for participants, specifically designed for senior executives across all industries who are entering newly-acquired or recently expanded roles, as well as for functional managers looking to further their leadership capabilities. “This program aims to expedite the process through which a senior executive would evolve professionally: from a functional specialist to a strategic general manager, capable of holistically managing their companies and planning long-term success,” said Das Narayandas, James J. Hill Professor of Business Administration and Senior Associate Dean and Chair of Executive Education and Publishing. “GMP affords participants the opportunity to step away from daily work life demands and focus on personal and professional growth that might otherwise take years to develop. That's the true value of the program.” Over the course of an intensive sixteen-week curriculum, held both on and off the Harvard Business School campus in Boston, MA, executives will work with HBS faculty to broaden management skills and learn practical concepts and frameworks they can use to approach all areas of their businesses. While on campus, participants will live and study in Living Groups, an integral part of the GMP experience. These groups allow a small, diverse collection of peers to work closely in conjunction with one another, approaching course curriculum and selected case studies from a variety of perspectives while building strong, life-long professional networks. Structured across five modules, GMP begins by establishing a strong foundation for growth through course materials and off-campus planning. In subsequent modules, executives will assess the unique challenges facing their business alongside HBS faculty. Each participant will create a strategy statement, case study and implementation plan in order to apply teachings from the program to their professional roles. By alternating between on and off-campus learning experiences, GMP allows participants to activate the curriculum in real-world business scenarios. "GMP participants often tell us that the program has been transformational for them," said Sunil Gupta, Edward W. Carter Professor of Business Administration and faculty chair of the GMP. "They not only learn new concepts, frameworks and tools that they can readily apply upon returning to work, but they also learn a different way of thinking. The program helps build strong leadership skills that are essential for them to transform their businesses." As with other HBS Executive Education offerings, GMP will feature Harvard Business School’s renowned case study method, coupled with an emphasis on peer-to-peer discussions complimented by faculty lectures. Alumni of GMP will leave the experience as confident, transformed general managers better equipped to lead effectively and drive positive change within their business. Program Details: General Management Program: Creating Outstanding Business Leaders will begin on January 13, 2014, with participants continuing their program engagement on an on-going basis.
