Automotive

The automotive industry is heading into an age of uncertainty. With regulation and digital transformation reshaping the present, driving electric mobility and creating new business models, the future of the industry remains open to radical changes.

Recent and ongoing shifts in global politics add an additional layer of complexity to demographic, technological and regulatory changes already affecting the industry. New players are trying to establish a foothold and digital, asset-light business models are evolving by leveraging their ability to quickly adapt to a continuously changing environment. In this context, suppliers, OEMs and distributors need to find ways to increase their flexibility while not putting their existing revenue streams at risk.

IESE gathers global leaders from industry and academia each year to IESE Auto Industry Meetings to debate the trends, challenges and questions at play in this turbulent and changing landscape, while focused programs such as Industry 4.0 explore radical shifts in manufacturing models and process technology. Our portfolio of Custom Programs is laser-focused on the specific needs and objectives of industry leaders navigating change in the automotive space.
