RSM GEMBA: Teaching future leaders how to thrive in an uncertain world


The current socio-political and business climate is less certain today than at any time in living memory. In just three years, our world has been shaken by two global crises. The pandemic era exposed great vulnerabilities in our interdependent structures, supply chains and systems, and deep inequalities in the distribution of wealth and resources across our planet.

Now more than ever, threats to the world’s stability create yet more uncertainty ahead for leaders, organisations and communities. Meanwhile, digital disruption advances indomitably, reshaping our industries, our markets, and the way that we work, live and connect with one another.

A new style of leadership

Navigating this environment, determining the emerging risks and the opportunities that lie ahead, is an immense challenge for decision-makers right now. It calls for the ability to think fast, and to think strategically; the flexibility to react to change while keeping your focus on the big picture and the entirety of your ecosystem. And that calls for a profound re-think of your purpose and values, the goals and the strategy of your organisation.

Leading uncertainty also means aligning and mobilising people, inspiring them to bring their whole selves to the work ahead; and empowering them with the resilience to adapt, to respond and to engage with change head-on.

Want to learn how to lead effectively in an increasingly uncertain world? Sign up for the RSM Global Executive MBA!

Perhaps more than anything, leading this kind of uncertainty means having the courage to take risks and to lead with integrity. To be wholly responsible for your impact on the people, the stakeholder community, and the social, economic and natural context in which you and your organisation operate.

In this climate of acute uncertainty, we need a new kind of leadership: leadership that integrates the skills, the awareness and the courage to deliver a better future for all. So the question is: do you have what you need to become the kind of leader that we deserve?

The RSM Global Executive MBA: Shaping a new kind of leader

The new RSM Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) is a 21-month learning journey that will transform you as a leader and as a human being. To better understand complex challenges, their implications and the difficult decisions modern leaders must take to keep their organisations on track.

The RSM GEMBA will ground you in all of the core disciplines of strategic leadership

Drawing fully on their world-class faculty expertise and their deep understanding of the challenges ahead, this is a programme unlike any other. The RSM GEMBA will ground you in all of the core disciplines of strategic leadership. From global marketing and operations management to global strategy, from financial accounting to decision analysis to global corporate governance and more, you will build the advanced understanding and the competencies to lead people, teams and organisations in a complex and shifting globalised business environment.

Together with RSM, you will also zoom in on the critical areas of expertise that you will need to develop. Through hands-on, experiential learning modules you will translate theory into practice in the arenas of leading digital transformation, entrepreneurship and venturing, corporate strategy and development and leading with impact in developing markets. And you will customise your own learning journey by choosing from a breadth of next-generation elective courses, expertly geared to advance your strategic understanding and broaden your expertise.

A programme that realises your full potential

Throughout the programme, RSM will work shoulder to shoulder with you to accelerate your personal leadership development. With the fullest support of faculty, coaches and peers, you will explore the practices, routines and responsibilities that distinguish effective and responsible leaders. And you will create your own, personalised leadership development plan that will help you accede to the skills and attitudes of a world-class strategic leader.

You will emerge with what you need to think fast and strategically, to take the right risks, to inspire, align and mobilise your people for the future. And to lead through uncertainty, with clarity and confidence.

Take the next step towards becoming the leader that you deserve to be and meet RSM in Amsterdam on May 11. Their team will be waiting to answer your questions and connect you with other senior decision-makers who, like you, understand that our future depends on a new kind of leadership.
