Cultivate a Management Mindset

Organizations need multifaceted managers with the skill set to consider the financial, operational, strategic, and human implications of their business decisions. In Wharton’s online Management Development Program, you’ll gain the hard and soft skills to become a more effective and well-rounded leader.

Whether you’re a senior business leader looking to enhance your skills, a mid-level manager who wants to advance to the next level, or someone from a non-business discipline currently in a business management role, this program will help you attain the confidence, agility, and insights to succeed.

  • Acquire a range of hard and soft skills to improve your operational and strategic decision-making abilities, build trust, and create effective communication

  • Make more educated decisions through a better understanding of financial, accounting, marketing, and operational topics, including return on investment, financial statements, brand positioning, and customer analytics

  • Plan for organizational growth by improving work processes, decision trees, and organizational architecture

  • Build and leverage your network of other successful, high-performing professionals in the cohort
