This year’s class was accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management and consisted of classes in Leadership, Finance and Operations;  Strategy; two e-learnings prepared by Cornell University; 7 internal consultancy projects driven by business demand; and 7 coaching sessions with an executive coach.

In addition to the coursework and rotating terminal assignments during the 12 months, a major goal of the program is to expose participants to international postings outside of their own countries and regions, and to develop strong team cohesion among the leaders for their careers together across the APM Terminals Global Terminal Network.
