From Fintech and Digital Strategy to Team Leadership and Customer-Centricity the programs detailed by Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM), in its latest catalogue, highlight the value of the executive education approach to leadership and organizational development – as opposed to the consultancy approach.

Consultants are able to provide targeted short-term impact in a business context, but for organizations to build long-term sustainable performance improvement the key is the profound development of human capital, leadership talent, and corporate culture.

With digitization and the coming era of AI, the world of work is changing fast. A revolution in the skills needed by business and non-profit organizations is already underway, with a significant growth in demand for flexible skills in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment. As well as technical skills, complex problem solving, decision making, and empathetic social skills are all priorities.

“Given the current economic, political, social and environmental global uncertainties, Trends in executive development are for developing talent that can manage and optimise current business while being able to change and innovate,” says Professor Michael Page, Interim Dean of RSM Executive Education. “They need leaders, managers, and staff that can initiate change at the right time rather than merely react to situations that force change.”

These are two of the innovative new programs added to the RSM portfolio for 2020:

Fintech: From Strategy to Implementation. This program has been developed to help professionals in larger financial services firms address the many challenges presented by rapid advances in financial technology.

“For the past few years, entrepreneurs and executives in banks have been very excited about these changes, which led to a large number of new companies entering the industry. But now the ecosystem is maturing. We are moving towards a whole new level of sophistication. The program equips participants with real skills to create change in their organisations, and to work on innovations in finance,” says Fintech industry pioneer and entrepreneur Daniel Liebau, who will lead the new program.

Nordic Leadership Expedition. Leadership, coaching, experiential learning and the wilderness come together in this new, week-long program. Learning outside of an office or classroom will teach participants how to lead more effectively and create an environment in which others – and they – can thrive.

“The program will give people the skills and confidence of character to deal with issues in the moment,” says lead faculty, Dr Hannes Leroy, scientific director of the Erasmus Centre for Leadership. “And strategic thinking happens, because it’s not just about your own mental state; it’s about the mental state of the whole team – developing strategies to lead over several days – dealing with predicted snowstorms, for example – and making sure everyone is motivated.”


One of Europe’s leading business schools, and ranked among the top three for research, RSM provides ground-breaking research and education furthering excellence in all aspects of management.
