Executive Education programs are designed to benefit the unique needs of alumni and regional businesses.
When Dr. Stephen Ferris officially started in his role as the new Bryan Dean of the Miller College of Business (MCOB) in July 2019, he studied the University’s strategic plan and saw a clear opportunity.
MCOB was already respected across the country for its first-class student learning experience. But Ferris looked at Goal 2 of the plan—graduate education and lifetime learning—and knew there was work to be done.
“When I looked at the business school, I saw that we were doing relatively little to reach out to businesses and industries to benefit them from our extensive skillsets,” Ferris said. “We know that having robust industries and strong businesses adds to the well-being of our communities and indeed of the entire region.”
What followed was the creation of MCOB’s Executive Education programs, which match client companies with expert faculty members to solve problems and foster business growth and company profitability.
