Growth Leadership Academy

There’s a whole new world of Growth to unlock

Accelerating technology trends, utilizing big data, increasing environmental responsibility, managing remote teams, building purpose – to grow and gain a competitive edge in this landscape, a new playbook is needed.

Growth Requires Discipline

“Growth requires a discipline because getting growth, sustainable growth, is not that common."

- Francisco Crespo
Senior Advisor, BCG; former Chief Growth Officer, The Coca-Cola Company

Emory Executive Education's Growth Leadership Academy

"Technology and society’s expectations both disrupt and create opportunities for business.”
- Nicola Barrett, Chief Corporate Learning Officer, Emory Goizueta Business School

Accelerate the Development of Your Growth Leaders

We spoke with executives across the Fortune 500 landscape to learn about the challenges they are facing in both enhancing their core business and driving new business growth.

The Growth Leadership Academy is the result of extensive market research into those factors and experiences. Our program takes your growth leaders “in the rough,” wherever they sit in your organization, and builds, strengthens, and hones their capabilities so they become true growth change agents.

Where Does Growth Come From?

"Leaders need tools to look at the market fresh, and try to see the opportunities that others are not seeing."

- Omar Rodríguez-Vilá
Professor in the Practice of Marketing; Academic Director of Education, The Roberto C. Goizueta Business & Society Institute

What Makes The Growth Leadership Academy Unique?

“The experience of practitioners with faculty is the perfect marriage for creating real knowledge that is applicable and relevant."

- Rebecca Messina
Senior Advisor, McKinsey & Co.; former Global Chief Marketing Officer, Uber

This learning experience is not about leveraging executives as the occasional guest speaker. Instead, the Growth Leadership Academy has been co-designed with faculty and master executive practitioners who have lived this and have been highly successful in driving growth in Fortune 100 companies.

Growth Leadership Academy Learning Journey

The Growth Leadership Academy accelerates the development of future growth leaders through a carefully designed learning journey that combines assessments, masterclasses, and hands-on workshops, led by both faculty and master executive practitioners.

When we engage with organizations we help them look beyond the status quo. We work together to design and realize a version of the organization that can adapt, grow, and take advantage of new opportunities.

Our new Growth Leadership Academy is built on these same ideas. We recognize that the landscape has changed and that the playbook for effective leadership needs to adapt.

We’re defining a new approach to propel leaders and organizations today and for years to come.
