Making the business case to your employer
Gaining sponsorship of your employer is not as difficult as it might seem at first. Once you’ve started your application process, we will gladly guide and support you in writing a business case tailored to your individual situation.
What works best to convince your employer is matching your company context and needs to the benefits of the program. Here are just 3 examples that won sponsorships in the past.
- Project example: A manager is about to take on a major project. He believes that turning this project into his Master Consulting project will empower the organization and avoid the need for external consultants, thus saving money. It is also a great way to transfer knowledge and insights gained from the EMBA program into the company. – The employer accepted and the project was a great success.
- Leadership example: A functional leader takes on a broader role. Many challenges arise that threaten the success of this transition. At worst, this can lead to failure in the new role or at a minimum loss of business momentum. The Personal Development Program provides the specific leadership tools to excel in the transition process as well as in the new role, while the core modules provide the business knowledge to strategically rise above the functional domain. – The employer accepted and the employee excels in their new role.
- A local leader is being prepared to take on an international role. Many international companies require that local business unit leaders have demonstrated international business mastery. Antwerp Management School is a leader in international business and turns local leaders into global citizens. – The employer accepted and the employee is now a successful international leader.
