Participant Profile


Change is everywhere in the Middle East today, as many countries seek to diversify their economies and encourage new industries. The region's complex business environment includes distinct political and economic conditions in each country—and an uncertain global economy. That's why businesses seeking the best opportunities for growth in the region need exceptional leaders—executives who are bold decision-makers, global thinkers, and skilled strategists.

Taught in a series of modules offered in Boston and Dubai, this business management program will help you become a stronger leader who can deliver value in a global context, drive new levels of innovation, and build accountable, high-performance organizations.

Key Benefits

The Senior Executive Leadership Program—Middle East prepares you to make the bold market moves and internal changes needed to foster business growth and strong performance. You will emerge prepared to contribute to your company's success on a more strategic and senior level.


  • Think strategically, seize growth opportunities, and compete successfully, regionally and globally

  • Foster the innovations that will improve your organization's ability to deliver value to customers

  • Lead authentically and ethically at all levels and foster a culture of accountability across the organization

  • Build confidence in yourself as a leader, decision-maker, and negotiator

  • Develop enduring bonds with accomplished peers who span functions, industries, and countries

  • Take advantage of resources for lifelong learning as a member of the global HBS alumni community

Who Should Attend

Senior executives, senior functional leaders, or general managers leading successful, established companies in the Middle East with 10+ years of experience who want to sharpen their management and leadership skills and are preparing to assume new responsibilities or drive growth initiatives. Additionally, executives planning to establish or expand presence in the Middle East.


Participants typically represent growth-oriented organizations, including:

  • Large, established companies, either private or state-owned

  • Entrepreneurial ventures—either new companies or new ventures within established companies

  • Growing family businesses

  • Multinational firms with an increased presence in the Middle East

  • Nonprofit organizations

  • Government agencies, especially those working closely with the private sector

The program content is global in nature—not specifically focused on the Middle East—making it suitable for participants from other parts of the world. That said, the Dubai location will naturally draw extensive participation from Middle Eastern countries, affording valuable networking opportunities to participants from the region and to those from organizations initiating or expanding their Middle Eastern presence.
