About Institute

Baltic Institute for Leadership Development (BILD) was founded in January 2007 by a group of successful Baltic entrepreneurs with an extensive prior work experience in multinational companies, a unique set of research skills, management training backgrounds and work experiences gained at some of the world’s leading universities.
The institute conducts management and leadership research and provides executive education at the highest international standarts.
