Program Overview 
The business world is changing—globalization, economic downturns, demographic shifts, talent shortages, increasing regulation and new technologies—all leading to global business innovations that impact the workplace. Senior HR leaders need to understand how developments in the external environment will impact their organizations as they will be called upon to make human capital decisions that drive their organizations’ top and bottom lines.
The new economy is forcing senior HR leaders to redefine their roles in their organizations. Senior HR leaders will need to operate in strategy-setting roles that clearly demonstrate overall business contribution. Resources will continue to be limited, and senior HR leaders will need to know how to compete effectively for these limited resources.
This program will be delivered by an internationally-renowned business school faculty with global expertise in strategy, accounting, finance, operations, marketing and business innovation. By working with business faculty from outside the HR area, participants will see the "big picture" and discover new areas where they can provide expert advice to their business leaders.
