Setting up a reputed business is no child’s play. It requires unwavering commitment, a lot of hard work and an attitude of never giving up. Above all, it requires a visionary leader with exceptional management skills, one who is competent enough to take the company forward. Along with the regular management degrees, even employees need to upgrade their skills at regular interval. 


For achieving this, Executive Education worldwide has entered a period of disruption caused by the digitalization of content, connectivity, and communication. The current offerings of many Executive Education program-providers fall short of creating new skills in executives and developing fresh capabilities for organizations. Based on a study of all the programs offered by the business schools, consultancies, corporate universities, and online education-providers, we analyze the advantages, and the constraints, of the existing programs. We also map the vehicles for skill development – such as case discussions, lectures, simulations, coaching sessions, live projects, et al -- in terms of their potential to develop executives for the future. We then examine the impact of the forces of digital disruption – the disaggregation and disintermediation of activity chains, and the decoupling of the sources of value in education programs – on the future of Executive Education.

This issue tries to give greater insights into every aspect of Executive Education. With the belief that the readers will find this issue an interesting read, I would like to end with a quote by Clayton M Christensen, American academic- Management is the opportunity to help people become better people. Practiced that way, it’s a magnificent profession.


Happy Reading!
