Our Approach and Differentiators

Our Approach & Differentiators

Organizations invest in executive education to address pressing needs. Meet strategic objectives. Overcome specific obstacles. Prepare for everything that’s happening today — and for the opportunities that await tomorrow.

You’re driven by this urgent mission. We’re driven to help you achieve it.


We start by developing a robust understanding of your business and the issues and possibilities it faces. Then we leverage the full capabilities of the UNC Executive Development team to anticipate and address the relevant issues, push back on assumptions, and shape custom programs to fully address core needs. We work to create cohesion on complex issues across your organization, and to become trusted, collaborative advisors.

Our program directors work to deeply understand your business, to anticipate your learning and development needs, and to partner with your talent management team to design impactful development experiences. They have a singular goal: to create a personal, seamless and transformative experience for program participants.

Our faculty bring their cutting-edge research into the classroom to drive participants to think about old problems in new ways. Together we seek out every occasion to enhance learning, and take advantage of emerging technologies, techniques and ideas.

And every step of the way we’re communicating, sharing, asking, anticipating. The objective? To create a demonstrable impact on your executives and organization. To measure that impact, we benchmark everything in terms of its effect on your learners’ decisions and behaviors. We’re accountable for everything — because ultimately, we’re accountable to you.
