Learning from the best is just good business.

You know that learning is leverage – and that “classrooms” come in all shapes and sizes. We know you are looking for Return on Investment everywhere you go. At YPO, your ultimate leadership lab includes insider access to the world’s top experts, off-the-record discussions with peers and a network that opens previously-closed doors.

From the Harvard Presidents’ Program to a Navy SEALs training camp, YPO-exclusive programs address the multitude of issues that young business leaders face. Whether you need analysis of an industry issue, advice from M&A experts or guidance on developing sustainable business practices, YPO has a program for you.

As a YPO member, you also have the opportunity to learn from some of the best business minds in the world – other YPO members. YPO and CNBC have formed an editorial partnership consisting of regional “Chief Executive Networks” in the Americas, EMEA and Asia-Pacific. Members advise and inform CNBC’s audience and editorial leadership on what they’re experiencing on the frontlines of the economy as well as share their expertise with each other.

Another way members learn from each other is through the organization’s YPO Global Pulse, the only CEO economic sentiment survey that spans the globe on a quarterly basis. The survey collects information about expected growth in sales, fixed investment, employee counts, and more. By participating in the YPO Global Pulse, members ensure accurate and relevant results, helping fellow members make informed business decisions. Each quarter, YPO-WPO releases the findings to select international media outlets, with members serving as commentators.

YPO alliances with some of the world’s leading institutions, including Harvard Business School and London Business School, connect members with top scholars and the latest research in business and related fields.

YPO members also receive complimentary or special-offer subscriptions to leading business publications including Harvard Business Review, getAbstract, Knowledge@Wharton and the McKinsey Quarterly.


Timely conference calls moderated by industry experts, economists, world leaders, physicians and others provide members with a global platform for real-time dialogue on hundreds of topics.


Industry roundtables connect members in the same industry, or members interested in a particular business sector or geographic market.

Learning at YPO is highly individualized, member-driven and experiential. YPO is an ROI engine unlike any other.
