Welcome to Managers' Express

Managers' Express

Sweden needs more managers with different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. At all levels. They will add the competence and new perspectives vital for companies and organizations when dealing with the challenges and opportunities of our time. A more diverse management will also attract more of those potential employees recently arrived in our country.

Managers’ Express is specially designed for immigrants with managerial experience, to give them the knowledge and tools necessary to move closer to jobs within their fields  of competence. The four days program of intensive education, workshops and professional networking provides participants with the vital Swedish specifics for managers, entrepreneurial knowledge, hands-on career coaching, useful contacts with companies and recruitment firms. And more. All free of charge.

Managers’ Express is hosted and sponsored by Ledarna - Sweden’s Organization for Managers.

If you have any questions please contact Magnus at magnus.berg@ledarna.se or Mouddar at mouddar.kouli@ledarna.se. We promise to respond directly.
