Executive Development Program
The Executive Development Program provides customized, integrated learning that addresses specific, real-world challenges business executives must face in leadership, growth, strategy, change and more. Business leaders help develop our programs to address "real-world" leadership issues while programs are delivered by nationally recognized providers of leadership and executive development.
Executive development programs are open to partner organizations, individual executives and University of Dayton alumni.
- Become a more effective leader and make a greater impact in your business through real-world learning experiences.
- Gain access to a world-class executive education delivered locally by some of the best minds in business, nationally and globally.
- Enhance your network of contacts with other area executives in an environment that encourages learning and growth for you and your organization.
- Utilize the flexibility you need to participate only in those programs that fit your personal and organizational development needs.
Individual programs feature an array of topics, including change, engaging and retaining talent, innovation, creating a positive and creative culture, coaching, leading at the executive level and more.
