  UNICON Corporate University Partnership Study Released

Research Report: We are delighted to present you with the final report "Same Solar System, Different Orbits: Opportunities and Challenges in Executive Education and Corporate University Partnerships."  (large file: 75-page pdf)

Understanding how best to partner with corporate universities is critical for business schools.  The goal of this extensive international study is to extend our understanding of both the similarities and differences that exist between business schools executive education providers and corporate universities, to identify barriers to working together and to uncover opportunities for building bridges.

Surmounting the challenges of these relationships and collaborating on corporate learning is a future-oriented activity that provides opportunities for both organizations to improve in the face of a rapidly changing business environment.

The study was conducted by Marie Eiter, Jim Pulcrano, Jenny Stine, Toby Woll.

 A Culture of
Continuous Learning


Kelly Bean is Chair of the UNICON board, and is Associate Dean of Executive Education at UCLA’s Anderson School where she designs, develops and often teaches executive education programs.

Dear UNICON Colleagues,

As I approach the homestretch of my term as UNICON board chair, I have been reflecting on the quality of the individuals I’ve met from the University-based Executive Education industry.  A few themes have emerged from my interactions with executive education colleagues around the world:

  We practice what we preach. 

Not only do we help our organizational partners develop their skills, leadership attributes, and strategic acumen, but we also take very seriously the need to grow and develop ourselves.  I have rarely seen a group of individuals so completely committed to self- improvement.  The quality of your participation in conferences, webinars, LinkedIn discussions and other interactions, never ceases to amaze me.  I am inspired by you and grateful for your optimism and energy.

  We are devoted to the development of our own teams and put enormous time and effort into ensuring that we generously and selflessly transfer our knowledge to our team members. 

This transfer of knowledge ensures that the next decade of University- based Executive Education will be even more exiting, dynamic and expansive than the last one.

  As an industry, we never stop looking for ways to improve our clients’ learning experiences. 

There is a palpable restlessness among you to use every tool available to create learning that is impactful, memorable, and immediate.  This struck me most powerfully when I began reading about SPOCs a few months ago.  It occurred to me that while other areas of higher education struggle with how to turn SPOCs into an effective business model, we’ve been doing it for many years.  This realization prompted us to speak with some University-based Executive Education experts on the topic of SPOCs.  I think you will find the resulting article to be both informative and affirming.
