Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
A CNN Money story published last week shows that despite growing comfort with global trade, labor and business consolidation, leadership at the highest corporate levels remains largely parochial.
Just 19% of new CEOs at the world's largest 2,500 public companies in 2012 were nationals of a country outside their company's headquarters. And only 45% of all incoming CEOs, regardless of origin, had experience working outside their home region.
“Manchester Business School designed its Global MBA to close the gap between the kind of content and exposure that multinational companies need from future executives, and the limitations many young managers face in gaining relevant experience,” said Melissa Holland, Manchester Business School Regional Director, Miami-Americas Center.
Manchester Business School Miami-Americas Center will offer a free online information session on Thursday, April 25th at 6 p.m. The information session is open to all corporate HR representatives and prospective global MBA students.
