Advanced Management Program (AMP)

This 3-part Advanced Management Program (AMP) will help executives enhance their executive management skills, optimize further their leadership and financial management expertise and their ability to make vital decisions in all areas of management.


As an executive, you have an answer to every challenge. Your experience helps you to recognize how things are related, to see opportunity and sense where there is danger. With increasing experience, your ability to know what’s right and wrong for your company increases. Thanks to positive and negative experiences from the past, you are able to develop patterns of success and failure and to use them to your advantage.
However, executives also know that nothing is effective forever. What was right yesterday can be wrong today. What was a recipe for success until now, can bear the seeds for failure. This is why it’s essential to always look at your own experiences in the light of best practices, to be willing to learn something new and to analyze whether this is suitable for use in your field of responsibility.
This is the aim of our 3-part Senior Management Program. It offers you a valuable chance to review and develop your knowledge further in three subjects:
