Kellogg School Executive Scholars Program hits its stride

by Kari Richardson

The Kellogg School Executive Scholars Program is going strong and picking up steam. Since its inception in 2002, dozens of graduates have earned certificates of professional achievement in one of six areas: marketing and sales management; financial management; leadership and management; operations, supply chain and technology management; general management; and nonprofit management.

Stephen Burnett, the Kellogg School's associate dean of executive education, says the program offers great flexibility, allowing participants to choose individual classes that meet their needs from a list of qualifying programs and to complete these classes on their own time schedule.

The program is a perfect solution for executives who wish to reposition themselves in their companies or refresh or sharpen a skill, Burnett says.

Executive Education staff members are available to consult with participants on classes that meet their needs.

"The Kellogg Executive Scholars Program has been very successful," Burnett says. "It gives participants guidance on how to build programs around their particular needs. Another advantage is participants become Executive Education alums of the Kellogg School and they receive benefits associated with that."

Some of the benefits to those who earn a certificate include networking opportunities, invitations to student conferences addressing cutting-edge issues in management, access to faculty research and a 30 percent discount on other Executive Education courses.
