The country of origin of the Swedish Institute Management Program is regarded as one of the global leaders in sustainable business practices. Swedish companies are particularly active in coming up with novel, imaginative ways to integrate social, environmental, and ethical factors into their core business strategies. However, the problems are widespread, and sustainable development is something we all need.

The program’s curriculum focuses on tackling challenging business-related problems. Additionally, it includes seminars, meetings with key figures in business, politics, and society, as well as tours to actual companies. By providing a forum for information sharing, experience exchange, and high-quality networking, the program aims to challenge conventional thinking, bolster professional abilities, build cross-cultural perspectives, and bring participants together in a lasting and active worldwide network.

The program’s three weeks of rigorous training are split down into an initial kick-off at the Swedish Embassy in each country, a two-week module in Sweden, and a concluding five-day module in Africa. The program is seven months long overall.
