Learn to effectively strategize for and lead through intricate global contexts

Fletcher Executive Education created a one-day summit for the Qatar Leadership Centre in which 35 leaders from the public and private sectors developed approaches and gained decision-making tools designed to be effective for national and international strategic planning. This intensive program empowered participants to examine the impact of new technologies on geopolitics, security, business and society.

Equip leaders for a strategic priority pivot towards climate finance on a global scale

Our team created Envision, a 6-week online course with a 5-day immersion and follow-up at bank headquarters, for the Asian Development Bank. This bespoke climate leadership training for ADB’s top 100 executives advanced a strategic pivot toward climate finance as the bank’s top investment priority, and empowered its leadership to make informed decisions in pursuing the bank’s goals.

Empower the next generation to succeed in high-stakes negotiations

The “Empowering Young Leaders in Environmental Negotiation” program was a 4-week online course developed for the Global Environment Facility. In the lead-up to COP28, we offered self-paced training in climate negotiation for up to 300 emerging professionals in GEF’s stakeholder and CSO network.

Develop agility and confidence in international security, global business and geopolitical risk 

Fletcher Executive Education provides Diplomatic Leadership Academies (5-day immersion) each year for the Ministry of External Affairs, India. This annual partnership with the Sushma Swaraj Institute of Foreign Service provides mid-career and senior-level foreign service officers with in-depth understanding of how to address the complex challenges they face in their work in South and East Asia. 

Prepare early-career public servants for the unprecedented challenges ahead 

The Aso O. Tavitian Scholars Program has supported educational opportunities for Armenian public servants for nearly 25 years. Each carefully selected cohort completes a semester-long training program in public policy and public administration. In addition to learning from Fletcher’s world-renowned faculty, Scholars engage in enriching networking and co-curricular experiences in Boston and the Northeastern United States. 

  • “It’s very important for senior executives to get outside of our work environment and come together to discuss something that’s common to everyone, which is the future of the next generation."

    “The program was able to paint a realistic picture of what’s going on in the world. It gives us a sense of optimism because it’s not too late, and we can do something about climate change. With a multilateral development bank like ADB, working with academic institutions and think tanks, I think it’s crucial that we do this and continue to learn in the future.”

    –Woochong Um, Managing Director General, Asian Development Bank
