02 Feb Executive education and how it can change your life and your career
So you have been in the corporate jungle, wondering how you are going to climb your way to the top of the food-chain. Having hit the glass ceiling, do you feel stifled by the lack of growth?
Enter into the world of executive education programs. Like you, many employees feel either pressured or frustrated by the career roadblocks they face in their life.
What is an Executive Education Program?
Executive education is usually made up of short, intensive course work to help students build specific skills. CPMD specifically, offers a wide range of specialized education courses, in topics ranging from property, finance and accounting to soft skill and negotiation. The objective of an executive education program is to enrich the students’ skillset and promote career growth.
Top Reasons Why a Professional Should Consider an Executive Education Program?
- Simply put, it adds to your CV.
Your CV will attract the kind of employers you seek, once you have a specialized skillset under your belt.
- It will help you develop as a business leader, entrepreneur, or a strategist.
Not just for decorating your resume, an executive education course opens your breadth of knowledge and vision. Interacting with other like-minded individuals, and working in close collaboration with highly qualified facilitators can add clarity to your dimensions.
- You learn from the best facilitators.
You get to interact with highly qualified and experienced teachers, industry thought leaders and movers and shakers of the industry. The vision and wisdom they can impart can impact your life.
- It’s a good return on your time and money investments.
Compared to a full time program, with the costs of tuition and time value of money thrown in, executive education programs are lighter on your pocket. Moreover, you can continue earning while studying. The only real investment you will have to make in an executive education course is time.
- You don’t have to take a break in your career to complete your education.
You neither miss out on earning your paycheck, nor lose touch with the industry as you study while you work. Also, your company will value the lessons you bring to the table and appreciate your efforts.
- You build a network.
Network-building is one of the reasons most often cited for pursuing executive education, as reflected in research by the International University Consortium for Executive Education. With an expanded network of talented peers, you can leverage your career goals to take you to the next level.
- An executive education gives you immediate business insights as you apply your knowledge in real life cases.
Unlike traditional courses, where a student picks up theoretical knowledge without practical applications, CPMD’s aim is to provide its students an opportunity to apply concepts in real-life scenarios. The immediacy of feedback from the environment is a great enabler for deeper learning.
