Event Details


Given the multifaceted demands that business leaders are facing today, this three-day Executive Education course, hosted by the University of Glasgow Singapore, brings together experts from the Adam Smith Business School and the McGill Executive Institute. The course aims to help practicing managers improve their leadership skills in three crucial areas: strategic stake-holder management, global finance and strategic leadership.



This course is aimed at individuals, who currently hold managerial positions in South-East Asia and would like to improve their leadership skills. While the course is also open to all practicing managers, who might be interested in registering, it is particularly suitable for higher-level managers or middle managers aspiring, or about to, ascent into higher management positions. It also suitable for those looking for a refresher in higher management.



By the end of this course, participants should expect to have gained:

  • Harness your power to mobilize talent and inspire commitment
  • Challenge your beliefs within a net-work of top caliber participants and faculty
  • Drive emerging and generative change opportunities 



Day 1: Strategic Stakeholder Management (9am to 5pm)

Dr. Stelios Zyglidopoulos

This course addresses strategic management from a stakeholder theory perspective. It is intended to enhance the abilities of future managers to better lead their corporations through the multiple and diverse demands that an increasing number of stakeholder impose on them. In brief, through cases, brief lectures and in class exercises, the following topics are included:

  •  Understand the importance of stakeholder management for strategic leadership.
  •  Acquire the tools necessary to identify, map and understand the salience of various stakeholders.
  •  Develop strategies that would create value for all stakeholders involved.
  •  Understand the interdependence of stakeholders.


Day 2: Global Finance and Financial Markets (9am to 5pm)

Dr. Serafeim Tsoukas

This course introduces executives to a number of up-to-date topics in finance and allows them to apply them to real-life case studies. Through lectures punctuated with examples and case studies, the following broad topics will be covered:

  •  Understanding the role of external finance in supporting the firm’s real activities
  •  Modelling credit risk and investigating the implications for investors
  •  Analysing the innovation in the Renminbi (RMB) financial products
  •  Exploring the development of domestic bond markets in the Asian region.

Networking Dinner (7pm to 10pm)


Day 3: Strategic Leadership (9am to 5pm)

Dr. Karl Moore

This course addresses how we make strategy in the vast majority of industries today and how what we think about leadership is evolving. The first half of the day is based on Henry Mintzberg’s idea of emergent strategy. This session will enhance the ability of future managers to lead their corporations effectively in the face of increasing competition on a global level and rapidly changing and sometimes disruptive business models. The second half will focus on Introvert/Ambivert/Extrovert leader profiles; their strengths and weaknesses, as well as which of these you are and how to work effectively with the others. In brief, through cases, brief lectures and in-class exercises, we will explore the following topics:

  •  How strategy is now much more emergent and what this means for strategy making.
  •  How senior executives must now, much more than in the past tap into their younger employees, Millennials, to better develop winning strategies.
  •  Introvert/Ambivert/Extrovert Leaders, which one are you and how can you work effectively with the others?

Includes daily lunch, tea breaks and a networking dinner on 14 Oct 2017 (Day 2).

University of Glasgow and McGill University

Historic links stretching back more than two-and-a-half centuries between the University of Glasgow and McGill University were cemented in 2015, when both institutions signed a Memorandum of Agreement. Glasgow’s strategic partnership with McGill University is based on a longstanding student exchange agreement, and is underpinned by strong academic collaboration across a broad range of activities. Both universities enjoy robust and increasingly established reputations as global universities while retaining their civic roots and local engagement. Both have strong connections to the culturally innovative cities of which they are a part, and both are known for maintaining an applied and balanced commitment to learning, teaching and research. Over the years the strategic partnership between Glasgow and McGill has increased their capacity for academic collaboration in teaching and research, offering tangible benefits to their staff and students. This was evidenced in 2015, when Glasgow and McGill
launched a jointly-developed Early Career Mobility Scheme designed to strengthen their strategic partnership by enhancing research collaborations between the two institutions. Now in its second year, the fund continues to support PhD students and post -doctoral researchers from both universities to visit and conduct research at each institution, providing them with an opportunity to develop high-impact research themes with staff and students there.
