Imperial College Business School (@imperialcollege), in partnership with global online education provider Emeritus, has announced a new Executive Education programme to equip business leaders and decision makers with the crucial skills, knowledge and capabilities to better align their organisations to meet global climate change goals.

Launching in February 2022, the Sustainability Leadership Executive Education Programme is for middle and senior level leaders, across all sectors of industry who have either functional or organisational responsibility for leading sustainability initiatives.

Delivered in partnership with global online education provider Emeritus, the curriculum will integrate cutting edge scientific knowledge with seasoned business and institutional insight, to help leaders identify and develop transformational change strategies for stakeholder value creation.

Over 13 weeks, the programme will provide participants with the opportunity to learn directly from a global team of over 40 leading thinkers with expertise encompassing strategic, organisational and business model innovation, climate, health, social and environmental science, engineering and technological solutions and systemic change at business and institutional level.

Maurizio Zollo, Professor of Strategy and Sustainability at Imperial College Business School and scientific director of the Leonardo Centre on Business for Society, says;

“Businesses across all sectors and geographies are realising the need to win the competitive challenge by innovating at a fundamental level the way they create value. Doing this successfully requires the vision, the insight and the courage to undertake unprecedented transformational change initiatives. This programme is designed to nurture both competence and mindset required to identify and seize the strategic opportunities before them.”

Course content will be further enriched by leveraging the latest research from the School’s Leonardo Research Centre, as well as a dozen of Imperial College’s research centres across all relevant scientific fields. It will also deploy state-of-the-art digital education tools, enabling participants to take part in live lectures and discussions, collaborate with other learners and build a global network of transformational leaders.

As well as pushing the boundaries of participants’ knowledge and creativity, the programme will further challenge learners’ mindsets by encouraging self-analysis. To complement the core modules, the curriculum will utilise the latest neuroscience research on meditation and deep reflection to improve participants’ social and environmental consciousness.

The Sustainability Leadership Executive Education Programme will provide practical tools for participants to implement immediately into their professional lives. Participants will be encouraged to tailor their learning throughout the programme to meet the challenges faced by their organisations.

David Brown, Director of Executive Education at Imperial College Business School says:

“This programme helps leaders answer the questions: ‘How do I lead and run a sustainable business? How do I develop a corporate culture that delivers on social responsibility and other goals?’ Never has this question been so urgent nor so difficult to answer. We are delighted to launch a programme that combines Imperial’s capabilities in science, technology and business with industry expertise and some of the world’s most foremost thinkers and doers in this subject. Participants will develop leading insights and practical skills which will enable them to make a significant difference at speed. And we need that – right now.”

Anand Chopra-McGowan, General Manager, UK & Europe Enterprise, Emeritus adds:

“We’re really excited to be partnering with Imperial College to make high-quality education accessible and affordable, delivered in a way that works. At Emeritus, we’re on a mission to unlock potential, preparing people for the jobs of the future with the skills they need to thrive. This new programme in sustainability leadership will do just that, by helping equip the business leaders of today with the skills fit for the economy of today and tomorrow.”

Applications for the programme are open now via the Imperial College Executive Education website. The first cohort is scheduled to commence on February 23rd 2022.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
