Application Deadline: June 24, UNICON Leadership Academy

Applications are now open for the 9th Cohort of the UNICON Leadership Academy beginning Fall 2024

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, mentoring, peer coaching, and an in-person session to coincide with the annual team conference on November 5th. The 2024 Team Development Conference will be hosted by Nova School of Business and Economics in Portugal November 6-8.

* Please note that the deadline is June 24th. Applications that meet all requirements are accepted on a first come first served basis, and will no longer be accepted once the cohort is filled, even if this is prior to the deadline.
