Principles and Practices for Teaching Executive Education

Professor JP Jeannet: Executive Education provides a unique value proposition to business colleges and universities around the world, one that engages with practicing executives while providing incremental revenue streams to the overall institution. Exposure to business leaders through executive education gives faculty an understanding of the current issues and challenges in the work environment. Companies involved in executive education are excellent potential research sites for analysis, surveys, or case writing. And, executive education teaching expands the faculty’s interactive teaching skills and provides opportunities to test out the application of new concepts and research findings.

Building on three decades of experience in executive education, “Principles and Practices for Teaching Executive Education,” provides business faculty and practitioners with the core tools and distinctive competencies for teaching executive education.
