For more women in leadership positions.

“We need to start work with the idea that we’re going to learn every day. I learn, even at my position, every single day.” (Chanda Kochhar, managing director and chief executive Officer of ICICI Bank. Various media ranked her as one of the most influential and powerful women worldwide.)

Education, however, always is an investment in time and money, especially when you want to deepen your knowledge in a certain professional field or if you are aiming at a leadership position.

We at WHU Executive Education want to support ambitious women with our WHU Scholarships for Women. For each of our Open Programs*, we offer two scholarships (50% discount).

Advanced Management Program

Women in leadership positions are still rare:

In global business, less than 6 % of CEOs in the S&P 500** are female. These numbers vary by industry, but still, there is a high potential of improving this imbalance.

The WHU Advanced Management Program (AMP) is designed to challenge you as a senior leader during your transition to an executive or even board-level position. During this 5-day transformative learning experience, you will enhance your strategic impact and negotiation skills and discusses the challenges and opportunities of digital transformation on a global level.
