The Indian Institute of Management Lucknow (IIM Lucknow), ranked as the #4 best B-School in India (Business Today, 2021) and #7 as per NIRF, 2021, has announced the launch of the third batch of the Senior Leadership Programme. This cutting-edge 11-month programme enables mid-and senior-level professionals with minimum seven years of work experience to develop strategic insights and diverse functional expertise needed to lead business success through live online and a five-day in-campus immersion at the IIM Lucknow campus. This career-defining programme has enrolled close to 200 participants in the past two batches.

The world of business is evolving at an accelerated pace, and so are the demands on today’s executive leadership. A traditional approach to leadership, strategic thinking and decision-making are no longer sufficient to address disruptive technologies and shifting consumer preferences, all in the context of the evolving future of work dynamics. 90% of Indian CEOs would like to invest in leadership and talent development (PwC’s Global CEO Survey – The India Outlook, 2021).

Through experiential learning, the Senior Leadership Programme will equip participants to stay industry-ready with strategies for success in today’s evolving business landscape, emerging technologies, and shifting customer preferences. Transform into a skilled business leader and transition from a managerial to a leadership role to effectively lead digital transformation, manage financial strategies and P&L accounts, and spearhead cross-functional teams. At the end of this programme, participants will receive a certificate of completion from IIM Lucknow and eligibility for the prestigious IIM Lucknow Executive Alumni Status. This programme will challenge the participants’ established understanding of business management and develop the senior leadership competencies to steer their organisation confidently towards achieving revenue-generating results.

Commenting on the launch of the third batch of the programme, Programme Directors Prof. Archana Shukla, Director, Indian Institute of Management Lucknow and Prof. Ajay Singh, Professor, Human Resource Management, IIM Lucknow, said, “Leaders need to continuously learn and innovate to align with the increasingly complex business demands. According to a Deloitte (2021) report, 72% of the leaders agree that the capacity of their workforce to adapt, reskill, and take on new roles is central to their company’s ability to navigate future disruptions. The programme’s industry-aligned curriculum will help participants on their journey to the C-Suite enhance their leadership acumen, sharpen their real-time decision-making skills and provide a holistic approach to tackling real-world cross-functional challenges”.

Mr. Mohan Kannegal, CEO, India and APAC, Emeritus, said, “Effective leadership requires knowledge across domains, managing teams, and taking effective business decisions which have the potential to make a difference. The Senior Leadership Programme would help professionals attain a competitive edge in the fast-paced business environment. This programme is designed to help the learners develop a future-ready leadership mindset and strategic decision-making skills. As per industry reports, nearly 70% of Indian CEOs viewed the pandemic as a top threat to growth last year. Now close to 97% are confident about their own company’s prospects for revenue growth not only in the near term but also in the near term over the next three years. With insights from leading IIM Lucknow faculty, our participants are poised to be game-changers in their organisation, driving long-term business growth and success”.
