Management Development Program - PDD


The Management Development Program (PDD) is designed for functional managers and middle managers with at least 10 years of professional experience who want to take a leap in their career and assume General Management positions.

In this program participants will gain a holistic view in General Management in a constantly changing economic environment; develop their talent and leadership skills, enhance strategic thinking and drive decision making and implementation effectively. The program sits bases in academic excellence and a humanist perspective of leadership in business, where the dignity and commitment to ethical values are the backbone of success in the organization and society at large.

The PDD is taught in modules, full day or morning and evening along over eight months in Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Zaragoza, Pamplona, Santiago de Compostela and Balearic Islands, offering great flexibility and allowing participants to combine the study program with their professional and personal life.
