Develop the knowledge and skills for effective leadership in a changing social, political, and environmental context.

Organizations operate within the context of their competitors, suppliers, and customers, but also within a broader nonmarket environment that includes social, political, environmental, and regulatory forces.

The Leadership for Global Business and Politics online program, from the Yale School of Management Executive Education, offers business leaders an evolved perspective of nonmarket factors that affect business. It provides strategies, language, frameworks, and tools to analyze and respond to these factors to gain a competitive advantage.

Guided by industry expert David Bach, you’ll develop the skills and knowledge to drive strategies that anticipate and plan for change and disruption. Explore the move toward stakeholder capitalism, how it relates to your organization, and how it can be leveraged for a sustainable, strategic edge. You’ll also gain the opportunity to engage with a diverse and international group of participants, and grow your global network online.
