The Columbia Advantage
Open enrollment and custom programs address executives' specific goals and needs for themselves, their teams, and their organizations. Our open enrollment portfolio consists of programs lasting two days to four weeks, take place throughout the year and cover leadership, management, strategy, marketing, and finance topics. Programs are offered in different formats — modularly, consecutively or online — to accommodate busy schedules. Two open enrollment programs are dedicated specifically to those in nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations.
Custom programs are crafted to address the specific needs of a particular organization. Executive Education offers a personalized blend of scholarly research and practical approaches, which is the hallmark of all our programs. Early on, a Columbia faculty director is engaged for an in-depth exploration of the organization's pressing challenges, and potential solutions. A four-step design, development and delivery process creates specific skills and learning for lasting value.
Find the right program for you, delivered as only Columbia can deliver.
