Executive Weekends

The Donald School of Business is making business education more accessible by introducing Executive Weekends to our mix of delivery options. This format will allow flexibility for learners who want to remain in their current jobs while building their academic experience. Classes will be offered one weekend each month for four months, providing a blended format that will allow learners to complete their coursework when it is convenient for them. Throughout the four weekends, students will study the content of this course while also working with classmates on case work and learning from guest speakers.
