IMD business school for management and leadership courses

What is an IMD Sprint?

IMD Sprint is a new, accelerated learning experience, distilling the solutions to your biggest business challenges into compact, high-quality sessions of 1-2 hours per day, delivered online over 1-2 weeks. The project-based sprints teach you valuable frameworks and tools that you will apply in real time. The Sprint integrates faculty-led, liVe virtual interactive classroom with self-paced study. You receive IMD certification on successful completion.

Is there homework?

Yes, you will be asked to apply the learning concepts to your business via a range of exercises, toolkits and templates. You will need to submit the completed templates for peer review to receive IMD certification.

What’s the Sprint time commitment? I work full-time so need to be sure I can dedicate the time.

On average you can expect to invest 15-30 hours in total over 1-2 weeks depending on your choice of Sprint.

I live in a totally different time zone! Can I join a sprint?

Yes, the liVe sessions will also be recorded in case you cannot attend at the indicated time.

Will I receive a certificate upon completion?

Can I ask questions to faculty and guest speakers during a live class?

Do I have to attend all the live sessions in real-time?

I missed the live class. Will the recording be available to watch?
