Executive training programs in North Carolina:N.C. executives have better options than most

Yet another example of the great business opportunity N.C. has to offer: Three of the top 10 corporate-education programs in the world are within an hour of each other in North Carolina according to Financial Times’ 2014 ranking:

  • Duke Corporate Education in Durham (1st).
  • Center for Creative Leadership’s campus in Greensboro (4th).
  • Executive Development at UNC Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler Business School (9th)

Executive-training programs teach executives how to use their skills in context to be successful. For example: how to overcome the challenges of working in an unfamiliar environment by comparing other leaders and other cultures. Therefore they help companies to do business in other countries by not only bringing an American perspective on leadership.

The programs are mostly tailored to a specific business, ranging from open-enrollment courses on relevant business topics to highly customized programs for individual companies.

Such programs do not offer academic degrees, but they are in high demand as markets shift and organizations are looking for strategies to respond. Executive-training programs are less expensive than a sponsorship of working professionals to do an MBA. This way the competences of larger number of people can be used to grow talent and develop new strategies to adapt to new context.

Some of the best opportunities to do so are found in North Carolina!
