Executive Education's Steven Burnett, Julie Cisek Jones, Erica Kantor
Executive Education evolves to meet market demand
Kellogg School Executive Education leadership evolves to meet market demand

Dean Dipak C. Jain announced in February the appointment of Steven Burnett as associate dean of executive education for the Kellogg School of Management. Jain also announced a reorganization of the Executive Education staff to allow for full integration of the Kellogg School’s top-ranked executive education programs, which includes both its degree and nondegree programs.

The changes bring together the Executive Education Program and Executive Master’s Program (EMP) with a shared mission and strategy.

“Increasingly, our customers are demanding MBA-type programs without the degree,” said Jain. “We must continually evolve to meet this demand and remain on the cutting edge of programming, both on-site at the Allen Center and off-site, through customized programs at corporate locations around the globe.”

In addition to Burnett’s appointment, Jain named Erica Kantor assistant dean of administration for executive education, a newly created position. Burnett will oversee the executive education portfolio, and Kantor will oversee the operations for the Allen Center, including alumni relations, programs, technology and finance/accounting.

Burnett most recently served as associate director of executive education and director of custom executive programs. He joined the faculty of the Kellogg School in 1981 and is a professor of strategic management.

Kantor most recently was assistant dean and director EMP. Julie Cisek Jones will be the new director of EMP, moving from the post of director of admissions and planning for the program.
