We are witnessing a profound shift in how customers use digital technologies to consume information, make informed buying decisions, view content and engage with companies. This shift has been accelerated by the global COVID-19 pandemic and is reflected in the topical additions to the new curriculum.
- Strategy management
- Customer centric value innovation
- Leadership management and development
- How organisations and leaders have been dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic.
- Change management – are you prepared for this new era?
- Digital transformation, and how the digital World drastically changed during 2020
- Value creation in Finance
- And much more during the 5 days
Though the shift is easy to see, addressing it isn’t easy to do. Companies that have started their transformation early on are more resilient and are able to handle the pandemic in a better way. But many organisations are now pushed into their transformation and business leaders are searching for pragmatic ways to profitably grow their business in today’s disrupted world. Business leaders want to know how to effectively apply data and the latest digital technologies that are most relevant to their customers, their industry, and the unique growth challenges they face. This, and much more will be discussed during the Class of ’23. Discussions normally spill out into the evenings when the Class socialise as a group for networking events.
The intensive and interactive week-long course targets Top Executives and is highly-relevant to the Creativity, Entertainment, Connectivity industry and enables CTAM Europe to offer participants valuable insights and provide companies with a world-class, strategic executive programme.
The programme is very interactive, with plenty of group work, significant sharing of best practices, working on case studies etc. The class size varies from 21-36 attendees annually – so the value of networking with this peer group is superb since you spend a week with the class and forge long-term industry bonds.
For Organisations and Leaders looking to understand what changes are afoot in the Communications, TV, Media and SVOD/AVOD industry, how platforms owners are looking to pivot from their core propositions, what will be the key technologies in the coming decade – then this Executive Management Programme is definitely one you cannot afford to overlook.
Annet Aris, Adjunct Professor of Strategy at INSEAD, added: “We are delighted to continue to work together with CTAM Europe and engage with the top talent in the Connectivity and Entertainment industry. The industry is going through a major transition and will become one of the key enablers in the digital world. The programme is specifically designed to help them understand industry challenges and opportunities from strategic, customer and organisational perspectives, and will combine the latest academic insights with senior industry expertise.”
CTAM Europe successfully modelled the course after the hugely successful and long established Cable Executive Management at Harvard Business School programme, organised by CTAM US.

“The INSEAD CTAM Europe programme was an incredible experience. The quality of the professors, the standard of teaching, the interactive group teaching all made it an invaluable experience with insight and learning that can be applied to your working life. I feel, without doubt, a stronger leader as a result of the course. The cohort was also fantastic and the programme offered a wonderful opportunity to learn from other business leaders. It was also a wonderful experience to spend time on the INSEAD campus in the beautiful setting of the forest. The food was excellent and the programme of wine tasting, forest walking and fine dining made the whole week a truly valuable and unforgettable experience. I would not hesitate to recommend this programme to anyone looking to take their business learning to the next level.”

“The Executive Education programme offered an extremely broad curriculum in just one incredible week. I was challenged and inspired in equal measure and embraced the opportunity to engage with professionals from my industry. The group work and class debates illuminated the fast pace of change happening across sectors of the media, and armed us with the right resources to tackle this evolution. The faculty were able to bring complex topics to life; and their expertise offered real world insight into the digital challenges cable and television companies face. I finished the course with concrete examples of how to apply what I’d learnt to my own organisation, valuable insight into the future of the industry and a renewed passion for what I do.”
