Additionally, the internal Cornell partnership between Johnson’s Smith Family Business Initiative at Cornell and Cornell Executive Education has helped drive this program’s success and evolving design.

GEL prepares you for success as a next-generation leader of your family business by connecting you with peers and fellow business creators in circumstances you would actually face as an executive seeking to foster international and inter-generational business opportunities and the exchange of values and knowledge.

Strategic Leadership Program

October 31 - November 2, 2017 – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Competing in today's turbulent world is a significant challenge for most companies. Customers and competitors today may not be our customers and competitors tomorrow. How do we serve our current customers and prepare for tomorrow at the same time? How do we anticipate and master new technologies? This program will focus on understanding today's dynamic and turbulent environment and provide the tools to ensure companies can achieve success today and tomorrow. The program will use a combination of case studies, articles, class discussions, and activities. Participants will leave the seminar with tools and action items to implement when they return to their companies.
