Design and Development

Each custom program is carefully designed to fulfill your organization's specific needs. The process begins with a needs assessment and contextual analysis of the challenges you are facing.

The second phase is a collaborative effort among our faculty members, designated representatives from the organization, and the Columbia account management team. Working closely with you, Columbia designs a program that addresses the areas outlined from the needs assessment.

Design teams from your organization and Columbia Business School Executive Education then meet to determine the program’s structure, which includes content and session structure such as case studies, simulations, and materials. After delivering the program, an evaluation and refinement process takes place in order to make the necessary adjustments for the next iteration.
