Advanced Management Program

The three-part program is designed for members of the board of directors, entrepreneurs, all C-Suite positions (CEO, COO, CFO, CIO, etc.), managing directors, executive vice presidents, general managers, division heads and managers who seek to prepare for one of these positions.
