Executive Programs

Global Leadership and Business Diplomacy

In partnership with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) in Switzerland, this Executive Program is first of its kind in Hong Kong, enabling senior executives from the private sector to enhance their leadership and business diplomacy skills, that are in growing demand as companies continue to work with various external stakeholders such as government, industry associations, NGOs, and interest groups within the international community.

UNITAR has a world-wide recognition for delivering diplomatic and professional training to international diplomats and other major stakeholders within the diplomatic community since 1963.  Currently, UNITAR provides training to about 31,000 participants per year through some 500 different training activities and uses both face-to-face and distance learning methodologies.

This flagship 12-month Executive Program in Hong Kong consists of 10 modules (about 200 hours) with 2 online and 8 face to face in classes, delivered over a full Saturday and Sunday, once a month.

The classes will be led by world class subject matter experts flying in from Geneva as well as other parts of the world from inside and outside the United Nations' network.
