Business as Usual

Scotland. Means. Business.

The Saltire Leaders Programmes are designed to embed global perspective and international insight into the continuing professional development of leaders who are already growing and scaling organisations that impact Scotland.

Saltire Leaders study in Scotland as well as at the renowned Babson College, Massachusetts, and gain the Inside Track to investors, entrepreneurs and academics from the world’s most entrepreneurial ecosystems - connecting to Scotland's worldwide network of partners, contacts and supporters. This is truly unrivalled access to global perspective, insight and opportunity - expanding horizons and introducing new ways of thinking.

As part of the Entrepreneurial Scotland Community, Saltire Leaders are making Scotland the most entrepreneurial society in the world. If you are ready to be challenged to think bigger about your business and experience truly actionable learning and self-development - then these are the programmes for you.
