This is your best choice. But the first word should be capitalized, and it should end with a period.

 

The programme will be conducted by next week.

 

If you are talking about a week from now, no 'the' is needed. If you were talking about a week from some time in the future, you might use 'the'. Here's an example.

When they have the meeting on August 15, they will not have been through the programme yet, but it will be conducted by the next week (meaning the week of August 22).

 

Your last two sentences are both wrong. You don't use the present tense in talking about the future.
