About Executive Education
Executive Education Philosophy and Development Approach

The teaching and development techniques employed by the Executive Education and Development Faculty vary depending on the audience with which they work.  Specifically, our philosophy regarding executive audiences recognizes that while a conceptual grounding in managerial and leadership principles is critical, that executives require that this foundation be delivered in both a relevant and applied manner in order to deliver real value to the executive and his/her organization.  In addition, this foundation is delivered in an engaging and interactive manner in order to continually stimulate the thinking and learning processes of the executive.

Experience and Expertise in Working with Managerial- and Executive-Level Participants

The Executive Education and Development Faculty are selected based on their experience and demonstrated success in working with executive-level audiences.  Most faculty have years of experience in teaching in Executive MBA programs, as well as customized executive programs for external clients.

Areas of Expertise

All Executive Education and Development Faculty are recognized scholars within their respected fields, as evidenced by active research programs, published research papers and textbooks, and presentations made to both academic and industry audiences.  The Executive Education and Development Program adopts a “best of breed” approach whereby qualified faculty (again, qualification determined by demonstrated success) represent the following functional areas:

  • Management and Organizational Behavior
  • Marketing and Sales
  • Information Technology
  • Supply Chain Management and Logistics
  • Corporate Financial Management
  • Accounting and Economics
  • Ethics, Negotiation, and Interpersonal Communication
  • Innovation and Creativity
  • Managing and Implementing Change
  • Industrial and Organizational Psychology
  • General Leadership
