The new sustainability program is designed to meet the needs of executives in charge of transformation projects, who need to re-invent business models and develop strong competitive drivers in the short, medium, and long term.
“It’s all about taking a business from where it is today to where it needs to be tomorrow”, says Eva Ahlgren, Business Responsible for the program at SSE Executive Education.
The high-profile international executive program starts in March 2023. It is hosted by HEC Paris, with one module carried out by SSE Executive Education.
“We are proud to be partners in this program for executives”, says Katarina Hägg CEO at SSE Executive Education. “Just like SSE, HEC is a top ranked business school, and we have common values when it comes to sustainability and our societal responsibility as business schools to drive transformation. Sustainability is a focus area for research at both HEC and SSE, and the participants in this program will get access to outstanding research in an international context.”
With participants from both France and Sweden, as well as in-person courses in both countries, the program draws on European and global perspectives and brings a valuable international aspect to the participant network.
“Together with participants from different countries, but with similar roles and challenges, you will acquire a more in-depth understanding of environmental and social challenges, learn how to form a strategy, and develop your leadership to drive business transformation. The program will provide the participants with a holistic perspective on sustainability that executives can directly implement in their daily work”, says Eva Ahlgren.
