The Fogelman College of Business & Economics at the University of Memphis has a long history of working with organizations in the business community to design, develop, and deliver innovative educational programs to meet their specific business needs.
Depending on industry, functional area, or skills required, appropriate faculty expertise is drawn upon to insure that the most current management thought and industry best practice are designed into every curriculum. When necessary, faculty from outside the college are enlisted to help with program design and delivery.
The reality of business today is that education is required at the pace of business, with an identifiable return on the time and resources invested. To that end, executive education programs have employed path-breaking educational models to insure that critical knowledge is transferred to participants, and that they know how to apply it.
Interactive learning methods including, debate and discussion, simulation and exercises, case studies developed and customized for specific industries, field trips and site visits, as well as real-world projects are often integrated into our program designs to insure that all participants have an opportunity to "test drive" concepts as well as apply them in real-time to the real-world challenges they face. In the case of real-world projects, it is not unusual for the organization to realize a return on investment before the the close of the educational program.
Whether you want your employees to experience executive education and development all at one time, or spread out over an extended time period, our faculty teams can help design a program that meets your scheduling needs. In addition, while we are happy to provide our executive-quality learning environments at the centrally located University of Memphis campus, we are just as happy to provide our world class programs at your location, or a location of your choosing,
