Curriculum and Approach
AMP offers comprehensive content and an experiential approach that creates an invaluable, reflective pause from routine. Leveraging the strengths of Wharton faculty, the curriculum has a rigor and an emphasis on senior leadership that are not found in other programs.
In addition to leading classroom sessions that provide cutting-edge knowledge and tools for management, marketing, finance, strategy, and organizational dynamics, core faculty members are present throughout the program and lead daily integration sessions. This tremendous access means you will leave with strong professional relationships, not just email addresses.
Skills introduced in the classroom are put to the test through multiple learning opportunities that demand critical thinking, decision-making, and high-performance teamwork. These may include firefighter training, film-making, and a dynamic group project.
Participants leave AMP with a tremendous reserve of strategies, best practices, and a heightened self-awareness that can be put to immediate use in their professional lives. Specifically, they experience:
- An innovative and continually updated curriculum
- Stretch experiences that create meaningful opportunities to acquire new leadership skills
- Invaluable frameworks, models, and practices for managing the increasing speed of change in a volatile global environment
