Bring business context to life through people-mediated learning

Throughout the course learners access high-quality content applicable to their business context, and further their learning by engaging in discussion forums with their peers.

Learn alongside a global network of working professionals

Learners introduce themselves by sharing their context, and build connection and community throughout the program.

Learners engage in class-wide discussions of relevant case studies and the merits of different approaches. They also share with their peers best practices and strategies, as well as real-world experience and personal reflections.

Learn from and engage directly with faculty and industry experts

Learners work through weekly written assessments where they receive personalized feedback from teaching teams which enables them to apply content in their work context. In addition, content is further contextualized through live sessions with teaching teams, and insights from industry executives, complemented by a wealth of case studies, frameworks, and reusable templates.

Where does executive education fit into your organization’s learning strategy?

Micro-learning libraries are often at the center of most learning content strategies in organizations, but don’t always promote high engagement. This is especially true for senior employees or other professionals working on complex business problems. They require more than just skill acquisition; they need to cultivate and enhance their capabilities.

Is it possible to tailor courses to meet your specific needs?

Work with our learning design team to tailor programs that really drive home your organizational context and focus. Plus, find out how executive education can fit your organization’s needs, from dedicated cohorts to tailored live sessions.
