Developing programmes around
real world business challenges

What’s the issue?

Executives and HR leaders often complain that executive learning programmes are too academic and abstract, with scenarios based on past events rather than the challenges they face today.

How are we fixing it?

By customising our programmes so they reflect today’s real-world issues, we provide business leaders with the tools they need to analyse real challenges and help them develop viable solutions.

Through the experience and knowledge of practitioners from the field, Financial Times journalists and the world’s best business minds, we explain how global trends are affecting businesses.



More than 200 FT journalists are available to participate in our programmes. With significant experience analysing and assessing global changes and their impact on the business world, our journalists are uniquely placed to integrate real-world context into programmes.


Our community of educators are experienced practitioners: 79% have consulting experience, 15% are former CEOs or senior executives and 50% have experience in C-Suite teaching or advising CEOs.
