Advanced Management Program (AMP)

Result-oriented corporate management with lots of practical application, combined with the latest management insights, to inspire ambitious executives. This program is an ideal general management update in compact, 3-part form that is highly comprehensive, interactive and application-oriented.


As an executive, you constantly work on improving the competitive position of your company. But you can only move things in the right direction, and achieve something, within the framework of an integrated overall perspective. Executives with wide-ranging leadership responsibility find themselves confronted here with a special problem – having to watch over and manage several centers of activity at once. Achieving corporate objectives, healthy growth and a good prospect of future success; motivated employees, efficient processes, keeping costs low, positive financial results – none of these things happen by themselves. The conditions for achieving them must be right from the very start. This is the task of executives and one than cannot be delegated to others. Our comprehensive, multi-part program is meant as an application-oriented development program especially for middle and upper executives. Participants should already have theoretical knowledge of general management and several years of management experience. The program combines the latest insights into the principles of modern strate- gic management, business development, financial management, with leadership training. All with the goal of updating your knowledge to help further optimize your management and leadership skills.
