Throughout the world, a new generation of leaders is emerging. But what skills will these up-and-coming managers need to lead most effectively in this new era?

In both developed and emerging countries, the nature and pace of political and economic events demands new ideas, skills and approaches to leadership. The deep-seated "status quo" of how a government "should" operate is no longer a valid solution. That's where our executive education program for emerging leaders comes in.

A Chance to Expand Your Leadership Skills

Emerging Leaders is an executive education program that brings together renowned Harvard faculty and an international cohort of rising professionals from the United States and abroad for an empowering and energizing week of learning. Using a cutting-edge pedagogy, this Harvard Kennedy School program will develop and expand your capacity to be one of tomorrow’s leaders. You will gain the skills and strategic frameworks necessary to capitalize on opportunities and overcome obstacles, returning home inspired to enact change in your country.
