MADISON, Wis.—CUES is adding to its list of learning programs offered with Ivy League business school partner Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University, in September 2014.
The new executive education program is designed to maximize educational value, while minimizing travel and time away from work. The innovative format will feature a convenient blended learning approach, which includes Johnson Graduate School faculty-led online learning; personal coaching; individual or small group work focused on establishing priorities; and work on creating an action plan and implementation of new ideas within the credit union.
“When you think of CUES’ executive education offerings, you think of the highest quality instruction offered in partnership with the most respected business schools, like Johnson Graduate School at Cornell,” said Chuck Fagan, CUES’ president/CEO. “The same is true of blended learning with Cornell, the difference being that the learning comes direct to the participant, alleviating travel time and days away from the office.
“CUES and Johnson at Cornell have successfully partnered on the CEO Institute program since 1996,” said Fagan. “I’m so pleased to be able to continue that tradition, in a new, smart way. This program makes high-level education more easily accessible to today’s busy executive. And, instructors are all Cornell faculty.”
“Our philosophy at Cornell’s Johnson School is that learning is an integrated process, not just an event. We work with participants to identify and crystallize their personal objectives, and then map their learning journey using a wide range of methodologies, technologies, spaces, and dynamics in helping them achieve their goals,” said Kathleen M. O'Connor, Ph.D., associate professor of management and organizations, Johnson at Cornell.
Two courses will be available initially, focusing on Women Who Lead and Leadership Brand and Shadow.
“Those who choose the Leadership Brand and Shadow tract will identify their key leadership value proposition and assess whether it helps them meet their career objectives. We will also consider how their brands can be revised to better position participants to lead their organizations. Those choosing Women Who Lead will review three pathways to achieving power: developing sponsorship, building and leveraging networks, and negotiating for resources. I will highlight a comprehensive set of best practices that participants can use on their first day back to work,” said O’Connor. “Overall, it’s great to connect with executives who might not otherwise be able to benefit from attending Johnson at Cornell.”
For 2013-2014, Johnson's MBA program was ranked eighth in the world by Forbes. For more on Johnson at Cornell, visit johnson.cornell.edu.
