For safety reasons, all the Executive Education classes are held in line with the WHO and Luxembourg Ministry of Health guidelines. The size of the group is limited to 25 participants.


Organizations make hundreds of decisions each day. To improve decision quality, organizations store and analyze vast amounts of data. Nevertheless, many executives say their data analytics initiatives produce disappointing results. It doesn’t have to be this way. Data alone is no guarantee for making successful decisions. Organizations need Decision Intelligence, a key ingredient to better connect decisions to data.

Who should attend?

Executives and entrepreneurs from any background or industry whose goal is to make better decisions in their personal and professional lives. Leaders that want to build effective teams and decision processes. Decision-makers that want to make better use of data. Either you are a business unit head, a director, or an executive. Participants from all functional areas and all industries are welcome.
