Q: How does the executive
- Each participant has an advisor as opposed to a teacher. The
advisor's role is to help facilitate the participant's professional
learning and development. In part, the advisor serves as a guide, coach
or mentor. Sometimes the advisor will validate participantsí management
thinking and sometimes s/he will act as an opposition party who will
critique, question and debate their management decision making. In
either case, this is done to help the participants test and develop
their critical thinking, decision making methods and communication
- All courses are a combination of seminars and presentation
materials. They provide a summary of the essential concepts, a selection
of practical case-based readings, and project work with emphasis on
critical thinking, decision making and managerial planning.
- There are no Q&A tests, instead the participant is assigned a
real-world application project such as developing a new strategy or a
business plan for a company of participant's choice.
