This scholarship is made possible through a collaboration between EFL Executive Education and Sparbanken Skåne. Read on for detailed information and requirements.

Leading IMPACT is a 15-month management and leadership program delivered by EFL Executive Education in partnership with the School of Economics and Management at Lund University. The program consists of three full days per month (on average) of residential sessions at MiLgårdarna in Klippan. It is based on EFL’s impact instruction, meaning that you as a participant bring your organization’s current strategic challenges to the program. You are trained to think creatively about business models so that you can sustainably take the lead in your organization’s evolution in an increasingly fast-changing market with new opportunities and pitfalls. The program is offered in English and has participants from both Sweden and around the world. For more information about the program’s content and format, visit
