Abstract

Since there is improved awareness of the importance of global human resources development at the upper level of organizations, there is a growing demand for developing the top talents across all sectors. To meet the global demand, business schools across the world are stressing on Executive Education, which, according to the Financial Times, has increased by 10% in the 2 years from 2016 to 2017. Business schools are trying to meet the demand mainly by recruiting diverse participants and quality faculty in educational methods. From 2015 to 2018, study data were gathered from 16 business schools across six countries. The survey results on global business schools that focus on Executive Education for senior business leaders are presented. The present study discovered how the business schools improve the senior leaders' global communication skills to maximize their leadership capabilities in the complex and boundaryless world. This study suggests that Executive Education attracts and develops global top leaders by providing latest education on leadership, strategy, critical thinking, and technology effectively in a diversified environment with quality faculty and global participants.
