Amrop University at IMD

In close collaboration with IMD (the Institute for Management Development), Amrop offers its consultants and partners worldwide an exclusive Executive Development program: The Trusted Advisor.

Under the banner ‘Amrop University at IMD’, the multi-module program runs over a series of three-day sessions at the IMD campus on the shores of Lake Geneva in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Through professor-led lectures and workshops, the program addresses shifts in the global economic environment, the evolving organization and implications for leadership and executive search. It achieves consistently high participant ratings.

Amrop’s Chairman, Ulrich Dade: “All our Amrop University programs are designed to support broad professional development, at all levels of the organization. The Trusted Advisor program at IMD reinforces our ability to offer sustainable and relevant solutions to our clients. Our partnership with IMD underscores Amrop’s drive towards excellence as a premium, global executive search provider.”

IMD Program Director Professor Maury Peiperl: “IMD’s partnership with Amrop is based on close collaboration and transparency – exactly the kind of trust-building that professional services firms need to develop with their own high-level clients. Each of us pushes the other to higher and higher capabilities, making it a real pleasure and a great learning experience all around.”
