Our Executive Education Programs and Conferences are unique because of the professors and industry experts who teach in the programs and the participants, who share their experiences with their peers.

In the past years, we have generated a wide network of business experts with different backgrounds from various industries, who share best-practices from companies like Microsoft, Uniper, TUI Group, Axel Springer SE, Kuehne + Nagel, IBM and Metro AG. Due to our practical orientation as well as the proximity to companies and current global economic developments, WHU is connected with the real business world. Guest speakers are therefore an essential part of our conferences and programs for executives. This adds a high value to your learning experience and offers excellent networking opportunities.
