Advanced Management Program
A Transformative Five Weeks
Today’s executives operate in an increasingly uncertain and complex business world. Since 1988, senior executives have relied on the Wharton Advanced Management Program (AMP) to separate the signal from the noise to amplify their leadership impact.
AMP is an immersive five-week executive management program based on real-time business dynamics, economic challenges and opportunities, global trends, and market shifts. Wharton’s AMP faculty brings extensive business knowledge, research and expertise to bear on all aspects of this thought leader training program.
AMP is selective; only about 60 executives are accepted per session. The result: an optimal learning environment, with a globally diverse group of executives.
