Are you ready to deliver the next level of impact in the Kingdom?

To realize the vision and deliver on the Kingdom’s ambitions, Saudi needs bold and relentless leaders. Leaders with different mindsets and enhanced capabilities to effect change.

2030 Leaders intends to select, develop, and support 1,000 Saudi leaders, creating a pool of high-impact leaders who will strongly contribute to accelerating Saudi Arabia’s transformation agenda. 2030 Leaders is a leadership program unlike any other. Its transformative curriculum and world-class ecosystem combine academic prestige with a strong Saudi context, delivered in a uniquely Misk way, and giving access to a lifelong collaborative, influential, and elite alumni community of Saudi Leaders.

The program distinguishes accomplished leaders who aspire to take on senior national leadership roles and deliver the next level of impact.

Learning Outcomes

The program provides a bespoke leadership journey equipping experienced, influential leaders, to challenge convention, lead the nation, and deliver Vision 2030 goals. Participants are selectively chosen to enroll in the program based on the 2030 Leaders Competency Model.

Become a 2030 Leader

The 2030 Leader is ambidextrous – able to adapt to different settings and act when opportunities arise, without being reactionary. Aside from business and context know-how, they are well equipped with two sets of tools, intellectual flexibility and behavioral flexibility, allowing them to continue to learn, grow, and deliver change at scale, beyond the program’s journey.

These tools are part of the 2030 Leaders program’s unique DNA and set 2030 Leaders apart from the rest.


Learning Journey

2030 Leaders is a five-module, 25-day intensive flagship program spread out over nine months, that selectively develops a new style of Saudi leaders to realize the national transformational effort of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030. It is linked with a personalized leadership development track and is anchored with a Capstone project that applies what has been learned to Saudi’s current context.
