2022 Swedish Institute Management Programme Asia

Deadline: February 13, 2022.

Are you an ambitious and innovative leader who wants to learn how to bridge the gap between desire and action on sustainability? Then join the Swedish Institute Management Programme 2022.

At the Swedish Institute, we have created unique leadership development programme which brings together people from different countries in Asia in an enhanced collaborative environment, where they can co-create solutions between business and other sector organisations in your country which have a genuine chance of success. 

The Swedish Institute Management Programme (SIMP) offers you proven tools and knowledge from experts who can help you to put sustainability at the heart of your strategy and take your leadership to the next level. The programme is based on Sweden’s prominent position in innovation and sustainable business – and its connection to the global economy.  

The programme runs online between April – December 2022 with a follow–up activity in February 2023. It contains coaching, interactive workshops and lectures, as well as meetings with representatives from companies and organisations in Sweden. SIMP is a challenging and interactive programme that demands your active participation and contribution. It is not a series of one-way communicated lectures.
