Whether you are a disaster relief specialist for the International Committee of the Red Cross, an analyst at the Reserve Bank of India or a project manager with the South African National Research Foundation, you face similar challenges as you transition into higher levels of responsibility: you need the ability to dissect multidimensional policy issues, the tools to lead effectively outside your specific area of expertise, and a vision for effective governance in an age of interconnectivity and technological disruption.
This unique and intense certificate program is designed specifically for aspiring public sector leaders and enhances knowledge, skills and confidence across these three critical dimensions. Throughout, a particular emphasis is placed on the challenges and opportunities afforded by new technologies.
The program will take place over a two-week period in September 2017 at ETH Zurich's campus, as well as in the mountains of Switzerland, in a small group of international and Swiss participants.
We seek motivated junior to mid-level professionals who want to take on challenging governance projects and transform public institutions. Specifically, our program is tailor-made for:
- High-potential public sector or NGO professionals from anywhere in the world who are transitioning into complex leadership roles
- Accomplished professionals from peripheral sectors (academia, private sector, etc.) who wish to transition into the public sector
