Although there are no formal educational requirements, admission is a selective process based on professional achievement and organisational responsibility. We look for individuals who have demonstrated expertise, business talent and leadership potential.

Language Proficiency

We deliberately design our programs to encourage individual growth and to foster productive interaction among participants. For that reason, proficiency in written and spoken English is essential.


Because a diverse participant mix is an important part of every H2X program, we look for candidates who reflect a broad range of industries, functions, and backgrounds to enrich the learning experience.
