Understanding and responding to client needs and objectives is at the heart of our custom program process. We begin by analyzing your current business issues, needs, and leadership development challenges in light of the “Three C’s”—Cohort, Content and Context. Our goal is to build a truly customized executive program with business impact that meets your company budget and management development objectives.
Participants are at the center of all our design and delivery decisions. Their internalization and exchange of knowledge and strengthening of their network during a program enables knowledge transfer in the post-program environment.
Identifying the right participants is the key to a successful executive education program. What are your strategic objectives for your managers? Do you want to increase the effectiveness of an existing or proposed team? Do you want to include managers from many different divisions and with different skill sets in order to improve the exchange of information and insights within your company? Your Executive Education program director will assist you in identifying the best mix of participants—cross-functional, cross-divisional, or team-based— to achieve your learning as well as business objectives.
We believe that learning and practice go hand in hand. We routinely combine our business partner’s key issues, strategic goals, and fact-sets with our faculty's leading edge content. Anchored by Tepper School of Business professors, our executive education programs also include leading faculty from across Carnegie Mellon University, and expert presenters from around the world. As the result of this combination, we deliver the highest quality content and insight, tailored for your company's needs.
Knowledge gain and application is a function of learning context and participant involvement. At the Tepper School of Business Executive Education Center, we know that managers learn in many different ways. Our learning design contexts incorporate relevant and/or company-specific case studies, exercises based on industry and client-based data, and interactive lectures and simulations, to enable participants to meet their individual and corporate learning objectives. Most importantly, our context applies learning to current business needs during the program. We routinelydesign and deliver a variety of learning environments that incorporate real-time company projects and teams to create a direct bridge from learning to application.
Your customized program is delivered in the global venue, time-frame, and method that best suits your objectives. We will customize programs that last 2-3 days, 1-2 weeks, or are offered as modules spread over a longer period.
