About the Academy

Given the increasing demands on Chief Information Officers (CIOs), it is not surprising that every step towards the role of CIO is accompanied by unique challenges, experiences, and insights. The German Next Generation CIO Academy is an innovative format designed for executives who aspire to the best possible preparation for their career journey.

The Academy introduces you to the breadth and complexity of the CIO role and covers:

  • Networking: Share experiences with other CIO aspirants, experts, and speakers
  • CIO fundamentals: Gain expertise on how successful CIOs manage their ever-changing role
  • Career planning: Renowned headhunters and CIOs give practical advice for your way to the top
  • Stakeholder expectations: Representatives from the board and business share what they expect from strong CIOs
  • Management and communication: Coaching on topics such as emotional intelligence, resilience, and business chemistry

All this will be delivered as a combination of face-to-face and virtual events. If you are interested in participating in the Next Generation CIO Academy, please check the conditions of participation below and fill out the registration form.

For organizational reasons, such as the limitation to 20 participants, we reserve the right to review registrations.


Following a virtual opening event on 21 November 2023, the Academy offers two and a half days of onsite sessions at Eberbach Abbey in the Rheingau region, three virtual expert modules, and a virtual closing event.
