Executive Leadership Program 2018
Friday, 22 December, 2017

The International School of Economics in Tbilisi (ISET) invites applications for participation in the 2018 “Executive Leadership” program.

“Executive leadership” program is an intensive four-month course from February to May 2018 designed for entrepreneurs and business executives who strive to take their careers to the next level or wish to develop their professional network. Unique for Georgia, this program is designed to serve the needs of modern leaders by linking economics and finance concepts to establishing and running businesses in the Georgian context.

The deadline for application is January 20, 2018.

The program consists of four thematic modules covering the whole spectrum of leadership skills:

• Economics and Policy

• Finance

• Strategic Management and Leadership

• Marketing and Communications

Each module consists of 48 hours of face-to-face interaction, including a two-day concluding seminar held outside Tbilisi in prime locations such as the Borjomi Palace and Gudauri Marco Polo hotels. Additionally, participants will be invited to attend guest lectures and visit successful Georgian businesses.

The program is delivered by a unique group of outstanding role models and recognized leaders in their respective fields. More than 20 prominent Georgian and international entrepreneurs, scholars, and policymakers will contribute to the program through masterclasses and guest lectures.

Participants can choose to enroll in any number of thematic modules and will receive appropriate certification. However, “Executive Leader” certificates will only be awarded to individuals completing all four modules within the span of two academic years. The requirement to attend all four modules can be waived for participants with appropriate backgrounds.

The working language of the program is English.
