The Saltire Fellowship is a six month, world class leadership development programme to grow and connect the talent driving the Scottish economy. The focus of the programme is on entrepreneurial leadership, experiential learning and a global mindset rooted in Scotland. This programme is delivered by Entrepreneurial Scotland.
Designed and delivered in partnership with Babson College in Boston, Massachusetts, the Saltire Fellowship Programme offers individuals access to a world-class executive leadership development programme with an experiential dimension.
The programme is short, sharp and intense. It is experiential, not theoretical; taught by successful business people who provide pragmatic teaching shaped through their real world business experience. The core programme is delivered over six months in Scotland and the USA and covers Sales, Marketing & Markets, Innovation, Entrepreneurial Finance, Business Strategy and Leadership.
Whilst at Babson, Fellows are immersed in the Boston ecosystem with weekly company visits. Fellows travel to Silicon Valley for a week long learning journey. Upon return to Scotland, company sponsored Fellows reintegrate into their organisations while open enrolment Fellows begin working with their hosts for three months on a growth/change project. A second learning module delivered by Entrepreneurial Scotland with Strathclyde Business School takes place in 2-day Masterclasses from November to March in Scotland. The programme culminates in a graduation ceremony in March.
