Are you wondering what you can do to help develop top management in your organization? You are invited to send leaders from your company to attend this one-week executive development program.

The Executive Education Partnership is a customized, executive education program developed with input from the organizations participating as partners. This business/academic partnership allows bridges to be built between the educational and business communities. The program is presented by outstanding faculty, all of whom are widely acknowledged as experts in their respective fields. Senior faculty from Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma –serve as on-site “hosts”– assure continuity and provide extra opportunities for one-on-one consultation with participants.
