Prepare to Be Transformed
The SingularityU Nordic Executive Program (EP) is a 3-day immersive course plus one alumni follow-up day in Copenhagen, Denmark that examines how key converging technologies will shape our future and explores ethical leadership in a world of rapid change. This intensive program is intended for senior leaders in business, government, and nonprofit sectors with the desire to have a positive impact at scale, and who want to create their organization’s future—and the world’s future—not simply react to it.
The program features SingularityU Nordic’s world-class faculty as well as international faculty experts.

What to Expect
World-class experts deliver interactive presentations in an immersive classroom setting, paired with insightful discussions and activities that leverage the diverse cohort of thought leaders and innovators we convene for each session. By convening a class of future-oriented senior influencers from all over Scandinavia and a broad range of industries, the program fosters insightful dialogues with uncommon partners and builds a supportive community of like-minded peers.
At the EP, you’ll learn what it means to “think exponentially” and develop the insights and framework you’ll need to design for an abundant future.
“Any leader that gets anointed has to come on 3 days to SingularityU Nordic to really understand what’s going on in the world.”
UK Operations Director, Ole & Steen
Exponential technologies are humanity’s most powerful tools for creating new opportunities and solving the significant challenges that we face. They demonstrate how the sustained doubling of price performance in computing power holds an immense potential to shape a better future.
The continued emergence of AI, robotics, and digital manufacturing that are transforming the workplace
The future of medicine and digital biology that are impacting human health in a myriad of new ways
The rise of blockchain technologies and their many implications on all types of transactions between individuals and organisations
The ethical implications of exponential technologies and how to navigate toward an abundant future for all
Together, these insights and tools will enable you to predict and evaluate how accelerating technologies are transforming your industry, your organization, your career, and your life.
While other leadership programs focus on best business practices for today, you’ll come away with an exponential vision for the future in this era of convergence and rapid change.
