Columbia Senior Executive Program Testimonials

  • Building a Learning Community

    Space to think, time to reflect

    Participants in the Columbia Senior Executive Program spend the first three weeks in a tranquil location just outside the city: far enough away so that participants can take the time they need for reflection, while also drawing on the energy and leading-edge resources of Columbia Business School. The fourth week of the program is held in New York City at various locations, including the Columbia University campus. With this framework, the CSEP community forms strong bonds among its participants: bonds that can last a lifetime. Learn more about how participants benefit from this unique design by watching the video, above.

    "CSEP was such an inspirational and rewarding experience. The outstanding value was for me the brain food on strategy and innovation with the focus on strategy execution and personal leadership. State-of-the-art learning methods and cross-functional and cross-cultural set ups with highly interactive sessions ensure the personal learning experience. The return on investment is the chance to trigger business and people with latest research, cutting edge and inspiring methods for evaluation and development and especially leadership with collective power."
