In-Person Programs Suspended

The health and safety of our participants, faculty, and staff are our highest priority. We have canceled our in-person executive education programs in the near future — with virtual alternatives in place whenever possible. As the situation evolves, we are continually reassessing the status of future programs.

Our online programs continue to run as scheduled. Vanderbilt Executive Education has virtual offerings such as Strategy Visualization, Strategic Leadership, Strategy & Operations, Finance & Accounting and Strategic Innovation. While we are saddened to not be able to provide experiences in person at this time, we are confident in our ability to provide you with a rewarding and beneficial experience in a virtual setting.

If you have questions, please contact Kate Paradis or Cheryl Bates.
