CEO for a Day

The CEO x 1 Day program partners students with leading CEOs

CEO x1 Day Participants

Exclusive to Odgers Berndtson, the CEO X 1 Day program is a global initiative designed to uncover promising future leaders and give students the opportunity to walk in the shoes of a senior executive.

Students go through a rigorous recruitment process, including online assessments and face-to-face interviews with our partners and consultants. Each finalist spends a day shadowing a CEO and learning about their background, career path, and an opportunity to transfer skills and better understand what drives these future leaders.
