Programme for senior managers.

Our programme for senior managers - at Volkswagen this is the "Oberer Management Kreis (OMK)" - is entirely focused on further enhancing the entrepreneurial skills of our most experienced managers, and supporting participants in making the transition from operational to strategic management.
The special feature of this programme is that we link specific content for Volkswagen with current findings from management theory and practice. To do so, we frequently use the combination of internal experts and external instructors from reputed business schools.
As a lateral entrant in this area, you will receive a thorough insight into our company, extend your entrepreneurial skills and benefit from intensive networking in this programme.

iLead is an international management development programme, under which managers throughout the entire worldwide Volkswagen brand as well as colleagues from other companies within the Group and brands share experiences in order to become more effective in dealing with three core aspects of leadership: personal mastery, leading others and business management.
Starting with the individual competences and development opportunities, participants analyse their individual role as a manager and place it in an overall systemic context. Strategic matters concerning the Group are also discussed and worked on in detail.

We guarantee to promote, support and accompany our top people through to our highest management positions. The "Group Executive Programme” is a Group-wide executive development programme, conducted by the Volkswagen Group Academy in conjunction with top-level internal and external speakers.  It is directed at experienced senior managers with potential for top management positions. The objectives are to deal with future trends and the challenges of a global competition, to strengthen the network between the participants of the Group companies and to develop solutions for strategic projects of high relevance for the Volkswagen Group.
