About Advanced Strategy & Leadership Program

Leaders are challenged every day to make fast-paced decisions while navigating a complex business landscape.

To succeed, they must:

  • Continuously upskill their business acumen
  • Acquire and hone new leadership skills
  • Cultivate agile mindsets
  • Synthesize ever-expanding data and information about their business to make critical business decisions
  • Deliver innovation and sustainable profitability

Wharton Interactive's Advanced Strategy & Leadership Program supports leaders on this journey.

The Program aims to teach critical skills needed to compete in changing business environments, where team, organization, and data-driven leadership capabilities are the keys to success. Through personal and team journeys and ongoing coaching and application sessions, participants will explore and gain experience in building and leading teams, conducting strategic business experiments, and practice strategies for countering common team pitfalls and increasing their team's collective intelligence.

Designed for mastery, this learner-centric Program gives participants the opportunity to hone their skills in a series of experiential courses; participants will practice key skills, reflect on their practice, and build durable, transferable strategy and leadership skills, providing a pathway to continued success. Moving through a series of modules, participants will work individually and in teams as they play various roles, make decisions, and grapple with challenges that push them out of their comfort zone.

Program participants will attain leadership expertise, empowering them to solve problems, improvise, make decisions, and explore new perspectives.

This course meets virtually Saturdays 10 am - 11:30 IST from April 8th - September 9, 2023.

Expect approximately 1 hour of homework per week.
