The BRICS Executive Leadership Development (BELD) programme is a one-of-a-kind world-class executive education programme exploring cutting-edge knowledge, best practice and global business trends through a series of masterclasses, networking events and study tours to leading companies in China, India, Brazil, Russia and South Africa.
The purpose of the programme is to develop senior leaders from private sector, state-owned enterprises and the government, and to stimulate business development among BRICS member countries.
The programme is designed to deliver a truly global and life-changing experience, to inspire and energise participants, and to develop emotional and spiritual intelligences – the courage to dream big, take risks, break fears, persevere and develop the positive values, attitudes and behaviour required for success.
The programme comprises five five-day modules delivered at two-monthly intervals over a year. Delegates will travel to the commercial capitals of BRICS nations: Shanghai, Mumbai, Moscow, Rio de Janeiro and Johannesburg.

Delegates will be expected to complete applied projects focusing on the exploration of concrete business development opportunities between BRICS countries. Study tours, visits to top companies, and networking events will promote the development of relationships and trust among delegates.
