Our programs use proven techniques for adult learners and include combined faculty lectures, case discussions, exercises, subject matter experts, and small group work. Instructors intentionally draw upon the expertise in the room to create an active and enduring learning community. Our residential program includes an action learning team project to address a real-world problem.
