You and your class

You are a senior executive, at or near the top of your company or business unit. Whether you’re at committee, group or divisional level, you’re recognized as a key business influencer within your organization.

You join an exclusive group of peers who face similar challenges and levels of complexity in their work. Your class will be limited in size so you are guaranteed the best possible environment for maximum learning, commitment and engagement.

After graduation, you will be invited to join the CLEAR alumni group and connect with other graduates who meet on an annual basis to broaden their learnings and have frank, confidential and inspiring exchanges.
