Leadership Academy 2023-2024 Applications Now Open

Leadership Application Deadline: August 4th

Program begins: October 2023

Leading a university-based executive education business requires a unique skillset. These leaders need to know and understand corporate and mid-cap businesses, business schools, executive education technology, executive learners and how to run a for-profit business. They need to know the technology and the politics. They must also know how to attain respect as a leader in each of those domains. 

The Leadership Academy is for UNICON member school staff members with leadership potential who aspire to leading a university-based executive education business. They will work with senior industry leaders who contribute as faculty and peer learners from schools around the globe.  

The Academy explores how value is created, how that value is delivered to customers, how excellent operations are constructed and monitored, how alliances are built, how assets and finances are managed, and does that while building leadership skills. The program will include webinars, virtual job shadowing, mentoring, individual development planning, peer coaching, and an in-person session to coincide with the annual team conference. The 2023 Team Development Conference will be hosted by HEC Montreal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
