In an increasingly complex and interconnected global environment, crisis management is essential for leaders to minimize the adverse effects on society, markets, and businesses. The COVID-19 pandemic is profound evidence of this.
This immersive and experiential online program from the Yale School of Management Executive Education unpacks various global crises to better understand the dynamics at play and their consequences. Reflecting on and analyzing these historic events using a specific framework, you’ll develop your knowledge, ways of thinking, perspective, and leadership capability to better plan for and respond to future crises.
Designed for both current and future leaders, this program exposes you not only to global case studies, but also to a broad range of perspectives — from renowned Yale SOM faculty, your global peer network, and a selection of guest experts.
Enhance your leadership abilities, business, and personal resilience, and walk away with:
The ability to analyze seemingly disparate crises to understand their common effects on business and industry, to better prepare for the future
An understanding of good leadership practices, based on past crises interventions, with which to navigate a crisis
A thinking tool kit to help leaders of business and society navigate the demands of crisis management
A framework with which to analyze global crises and events
An enhanced perspective and global business network*
