The best of executive education

Orchestrating Winning Performance is a unique experience – from the locations and facilities to the speakers and participants.

New each time

Each edition is completely new, integrating the very best of IMD's latest research and learning approaches. You hear from world-class experts across multiple fields, analyze real-life case studies, participate in active class discussions, work in groups, reflect on your physical, emotional and mental health – and more! 

Big networking, small classes

The program attracts up to 450 international executives and teams, yet the average class size is only 30. This means you have both big networking opportunities and smaller, more personal interactions. All career stages are represented: CEO, general manager, senior executive, director, functional manager and managerial teams.

Lead with confidence

Your new insights, skills and contacts will help you successfully navigate today's fast-changing world – and live a balanced, fulfilling life as a complete executive.

What participants say

OWP is a fantastic week. I am certainly further ahead in business life than I would have been without IMD's help. IMD is great - not just good.

Sergio Cantoreggi

Global Head of Research and Development | Chief Scientific Officer | Helsinn | Switzerland

At OWP you are exposed to a great diversity of industries and cultures. This brings real added value for me. OWP has given me the tools and insights to better negotiate with different cultures. I have attended other executive education programs before but we were not connected to the same level of diversity. You get much more diversity at OWP.

Félix Lavin

Director of Administration | Grupo Petrotemex | Mexico

This is one of the greatest programs that I've ever joined. It delivers content in a fun and proper manner and I am using it to give my team the passion needed to outperform.
