Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership

Executive education

Our executive education programmes offer insight into innovative, commercially relevant ways to address global trends that impact business such as climate change, technology disruption and urbanisation. We help leaders and decision-makers build the leadership capacity and skills to identify material risks and opportunities, formulate effective responses and inspire them to take action to lead transformational change.

For organisations that want to thrive in today’s context, our executive education programmes help build the knowledge, capacity and skills at all levels from chief executives and boards, through to middle managers and across entire organisations.


We make use of Cambridge’s extensive research capabilities and our unparalleled experience in executive education for sustainability

Underlying all our work is the desire to help organisations in every sector grow effective individual and collective leadership that advances their own organisation’s development and builds the foundations for a sustainable economy.

We deliver bespoke programmes

Our programmes are customised for companies to address specific learning and development needs. We work closely with clients to define objectives and the right structure for learning, based on our extensive knowledge of how individuals learn.

Our design teams work through a process that includes needs analysis, horizon scanning and assessment of participant profiles to determine the right content and structure. This could be a series of half-day seminars, three-day workshops, or modules delivered over consecutive years. Often, our programmes combine face-to-face learning with online modules if required, delivered in Cambridge or elsewhere in the world.

We help companies to assess their leadership needs

We work with companies to assess their leadership needs and then work with them to develop a strategy to help them plan for the future.


We take a collaborative approach to leadership and change

We create an effective, safe learning environment for constructive dialogue, challenging assumptions and engaging with diverse perspectives, equipping participants to shape strategic interventions that will deliver impact and long-term value within their organisations. We look for practical actions that individuals and groups can take in order to deliver change.
