ESMT European School of Management and Technology will pay for almost two-thirds of tuition costs for experienced female leaders on the Executive Transition Program starting in October 2014.
The two scholarships, each valued at €17,500, are designed for women who have demonstrated entrepreneurial initiative in their careers and can display tangible results in their areas of responsibility. Kirsten Kaup, Executive Transition Program scholar of 2013 said: “The international exchange between participants from different sectors has inspired me. Those who want to grow professionally and personally are the right candidates to apply for the scholarships.” Prof. Olaf Plötner, Dean of Executive Education at ESMT, said: “After the very positive experiences of last year, we are happy to again support outstanding candidates in achieving their professional goals. For us, it is important to bring together talents with diverse backgrounds and perspectives.” The Executive Transition Program takes place in Berlin and Schloss Gracht, and is taught in English, in three modules of 10 days each, between October 2014 and June 2015 The first module provides a foundation for function-oriented management skills, while the second module focuses on cross-functional aspects and includes a stay in Brussels to explore the influence of European institutions on corporate governance and investment opportunities. The third session focuses on putting leadership into action. Candidates must apply via e-mail by June 30, 2014. For more information please visit the website: http://www.esmt.org/women-leaders
