Offering Superior Program Design With Lasting Impact
Our custom programs are crafted to have an immediate and strong, lasting impact on individuals, promoting positive change throughout organizations.
Your company’s key representatives will meet with the Office of Executive Education Team to understand the goals and key issues of intended audience and then consult with select members of The Paul Merage School of Business faculty to develop a comprehensive diagnosis of your business issues and develop the right training program. Together we develop a comprehensive program design including content, scheduling and instructional resources.
The process is straightforward, and you participate in:
- Identifying high-potential leaders
- Diagnosing needs
- Drafting program content and format
- Reviewing program design
- Finalizing program and faculty
- Implementing the program
A program design proposal is then presented to your company's key personnel for their review, adjustments and modifications. The program proposal and design is continually refined until it meets your organization's needs.
We then jointly determine the best method and place for program delivery.
This process allows your company open and confidential communication with us.
Each of your questions and/or concerns will be attended to thoroughly and privately.
Our program development philosophy is based on four key principles:

Program course content will generally incorporate assessment tools, evaluation instruments and on-the-job application of classroom learning as well as simulated and group exercises that are relevant to the highlighted topics.

Many custom programs also incorporate real organizational issues and challenges that are defined by the executive team and are addressed by the participants with tangible deliverables.
All required educational materials, books, handouts, and assessment tools, as well as preparation and development time, are included as part of the program.
Course evaluations are also provided and will be completed by participants.
