In December, Scott Tingle, who in 2015 completed The Executive Program, Darden Executive Education's flagship program for senior leaders, will travel to Baikonur, Kazakhstan to fulfill a lifelong dream: space travel.
Companies today face an unprecedented rate of change, and their senior leaders must be agile decision-makers and global strategists who steer their organizations through volatility to drive growth. To meet these ever-evolving needs, Darden is refreshing our flagship senior leadership experience, The Executive Program (TEP) for 2018, extending the program to four weeks from 3-29 June 2018.
In June, participants and faculty from The Executive Program (TEP) spent three days in Washington, D.C., as part of their three-week learning journey. Their D.C. experience focused on leading through uncertainty and featured opportunities to meet with industry and political leaders to explore global economic challenges, disruptive change and the turbulent political environment.
During the 2nd Annual Innovation Summit: Growing and Enabling Innovators hosted by Darden Executive Education in the Washington, D.C., area on 16 May, over 60 leaders came together from various companies and industries, including U.S. military, banking/investing, healthcare, IT, nonprofit, etc. to hear from Professor Ed Hess, author of Humility is the New Smart and Learn or Die.
While many of the participants were facing specific challenges in trying to grow and innovate, there was a consensus that what has been successful for organizations in the past isn't going to be sustainable in the future. "We need to look at new ways of doing things on a regular basis," said participant Jen Sovada with the U.S. Air Force. "Oftentimes we get stuck in these paradigms where we are comfortable, but we're not making any progress."
Financial Times in its 2017 Executive Education ranking named Darden Executive Education’s open-enrollment programs No. 2 in the United States and No. 5 in the world.
Scott Tingle’s (TEP ’15) decorated U.S. Navy and aeronautical engineering career culminated in an offer in 2009 to take command of the Navy’s largest test squadron on the East Coast — an enormous honor under any circumstance.
Darden Executive Education recently partnered with Aluminum Bahrain (Alba), a manufacturing organization in the Middle East to develop a custom program titled, The Alba Next Generation Leadership Program. This was a unique opportunity to work with one of the largest aluminum smelters in the world.
At the very moment the world's eyes are on Washington D.C., our flagship course, The Executive Program (TEP), will be hosting a residency in the Washington, D.C, area. The program will provide an opportunity for participants to connect directly with global thought leaders and policymakers on subjects including trade policy, immigration policy, global markets, cybersecurity and more.
