Rotman Executive Leadership Online

Senior leadership learning for remote teams, diverse workforces, and long-term success.

Our worlds and our organizations are changing rapidly, making it difficult for even experienced leaders to tackle competing priorities. Expand your influence, transform your decision-making and learn to lead more effectively with Rotman’s Executive Leadership Online.

Based directly on what we’ve heard from clients and members of the Rotman community, we’ve designed this program to help senior leaders overcome new and increasingly complex challenges brought on by remote work, thorny political situations, and a changing workforce.

Global surveys indicate that the vast majority of employees feel disengaged from their work, with no clear sense of purpose or meaning. In this program, we will explore the psychology of meaningful work and its role in employee engagement. These insights will equip you to drive change and to shape a high-performance culture within your organization. 

If you are moving into a more senior role for the first time, you will receive the tools and frameworks you will need to change your approach and priorities so you can succeed. If you have already assumed senior leadership responsibilities, you will benefit from insights on alternative approaches and strategies that you can adopt to ensure your success in delivering on your new responsibilities. 


Flexible Learning Design 

Don’t feel alone while you learn online. We’ve designed this program to respect both the current challenges of working from home while maintaining and building connections with a class of your peers across different industries and organizations. You’ll still gain the networking and learning benefits of our in-class programs while learning from the comfort of your own home with a schedule adapted to your current needs.
