To create true global thinkers, leaders and organisations capable of sustained international growth by developing the knowledge, mindset, capability and confidence of senior executives of global New Zealand businesses.


Global Executive Leadership Programme - Module 1, August 2011
The inaugural Global Executive Leadership Programme launched successfully on the 24th of August 2011. Many kilometres later, after an exciting year of learning, reflecting, celebrating success and overcoming challenges, we are delighted to announce that the intake for the 2013 programme is now open.

This exciting initiative was developed by The University of Auckland Business School, Thunderbird School of Global Management and The ICEHOUSE and sponsored by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise. Last year we took 23 carefully selected top level New Zealand executives through a program designed to develop a global mindset and to realize their organisations international growth potential. You can read our participant’s success stories here.

We are now looking to recruit participants for the 2013 programme. A demanding, experiential programme delivering residential modules in New Zealand, China and the USA, this programme offers a unique learning opportunity for leaders of companies with high growth potential in global markets. Its aim is to put New Zealand companies on a path of sustained international growth by developing and enhancing the ambition, mind-set and capability of New Zealand’s business leaders.
