Executive Education in the United States (USA)

Thinking of pursuing executive education in the United States? The US is known for its business education, hosting some of the world's top-ranked, and oldest, business schools. And indeed, many business schools in the USA run a multitude of executive education offerings, giving you many courses to choose from.

Some managers who study executive education in the US opt to pursue a short, open enrollment course, which can range from just a half-day long up to a week. Longer, more robust executive programs are also on offer, lasting several weeks or longer, and some may even lead to a certificate or a diploma (such as a General...

Thinking of pursuing executive education in the United States? The US is known for its business education, hosting some of the world's top-ranked, and oldest, business schools. And indeed, many business schools in the USA run a multitude of executive education offerings, giving you many courses to choose from.

Some managers who study executive education in the US opt to pursue a short, open enrollment course, which can range from just a half-day long up to a week. Longer, more robust executive programs are also on offer, lasting several weeks or longer, and some may even lead to a certificate or a diploma (such as a General Management Program (GMP)). Some business schools in the US also offer modular executive courses, meaning that they are spread out over more than one modules, so participants can put their learning to use in the workplace between sessions.

And increasingly, many business schools in the United States are offering executive courses in an online format, meaning you can study alongside a global audience, right from your own home or office. 

The benefits of studying US-based executive education are manifold. Many managers use executive courses to quickly learn about new research or breakthroughs in management. Those new to the management level may also use an executive course to develop targeted skills in particular management areas, such as finance, business analytics, supply chain, or sustainability, for example.

Others use executive education to network with participants, who may hail from all over the world and from many different backgrounds. Studying executive education at a US business school means that the audiences are generally very diverse. 

Perhaps more practically, having an executive education achievement from a US-based institution might look really good on a participant's CV.
