Custom executive education turns learning into tangible change

With many organizations undergoing major changes, such as cost-cutting and disruptive technologies, some are turning to custom executive education to develop management. Ivey’s Executive Education Program connects content with the realities of the clients’ work and integrates the learning experience with the company’s strategic objectives.

Martha Maznevski, PhD ’94, Ivey Professor of Organizational Behaviour and one of the School's Faculty Directors for Executive Education, says in addition to realizing savings and efficiencies for organizations, the program allows for many professionals to get re-energized about their careers and their commitment to the company.

"Executive education really helps companies make their transitions more effective,” she says. “That's because good executive education helps increase leaders' capabilities to shape and implement change."
