And you know that to manage this tide, which will only intensify in the years ahead, you need to build upon your existing foundation with skills that are timeless and flexible. At Columbia Business School Executive Education, we pride ourselves on providing an education uniquely suited to the challenges of today’s economy. Many features distinguish our programs, but I would like to highlight three in particular. The first is our superb faculty— globally recognized for its contributions to business scholarship. These are the same dedicated professors who teach in our MBA programs. As you will discover, they are gifted communicators, sharing what they know as researchers and authors, and from years of working with organizations like yours.

“From the morning our programs begin, there’s a feeling that incredible things can happen. And they do, not just in the classroom, but also while collaborating on a project late into the night, bonding during a pickup basketball game or chatting with a world leader over cocktails. Is it the energy of New York or the electricity of having a group of highly intelligent and immensely curious people together in one place? It’s probably a little bit of both. The people who take part in this program are optimistic, positive—and that’s infectious.

your communication for maximum effect. • Recognize different types of organizational power and their uses.

who should attend

FACULTY SPOTL I G H T This program, notes Professor Bontempo, developed from an observation that executives needed more than a course in simply learning how to negotiate transactions: “Executives are often in meetings where they need to be persuasive, they need to build consensus, they need to change people’s minds and they need to overcome resistance to a change in strategy or the implementation of a new initiative.”

Executives at all levels, especially those ready to make a transition from being a technical specialist to a functional leader; those who need to be more effective at building consensus, influencing peers or managing up; or those who must drive change. faculty director

Robert N. Bontempo, Adjunct Associate Professor of Management The Director’s View: “Your career often depends on promoting your agenda with people over whom you don’t have direct formal authority. Persuasion is changing what people believe about a course of action. It is a fundamental leadership skill that entails articulating a vision, building a consensus and getting buy-in and support from followers.” dates

The Complete Executive Experience and Certificate in Business Excellence

The Certificate in Business Excellence (CIBE) is exclusive to Columbia Business School. Participants have the opportunity to obtain the CIBE by completing a total of 18 program days during four years. The CIBE provides recognition of your achievement and the investment you and your company have made in your education and development. Any program can be applied toward the completion of the certificate. Choose the programs that suit your needs and meet your educational criteria. Columbia also can work with your company to develop a cobranded CIBE that is in alignment with your corporate objectives. CIBE recipients receive select Columbia Business School alumni benefits: • Invitations to Columbia Business School alumni events and programs around the world • Global networking opportunities

Columbia Business School Executive Education programs focus on the total executive: finding a balance between your professional life and personal growth. Residential programs include Executive Well-Being sessions that address your physical and mental needs and help you develop positive lifestyle practices. These sessions provide a revitalizing atmosphere that enhances your classroom learning and gives you time for recreation. During residential programs, participants and faculty members reside together and have ample opportunity to connect and establish a vibrant learning community. Time is set aside for relaxation, when program participants can interact in less formal venues. Evenings also may include presentations, workshops and small-group discussions, as well as social events and dinners. Many participants report long-lasting friendships with the people they meet at these programs.

Custom Programs

The Columbia Custom Experience Companies or organizations facing strategic, leadership or management challenges or who are looking to strengthen performance in these areas can greatly benefit from a Columbia Business School Executive Education custom program.

The Columbia Difference: Faculty Involvement Our custom programs offer organizations something unique right from the start: a dedicated Columbia Business School professor who is the architect of the program design and the faculty lead for the entire engagement.

Our Custom Program design is guided by our firm belief that an idea, no matter how brilliant, has ultimate value only when it is put into action. This approach holds that life is the classroom for the adult learner and reinforces the concept that people learn best through, and from, real-life experiences.

Each Columbia faculty director, in partnership with an organization, establishes educational objectives that reflect desired goals and then shapes the program accordingly: developing the curriculum and recruiting contributing faculty members in the required areas of expertise.

Maximizing this approach, our custom team partners with organizations to design, develop and deliver programs that address unique challenges, applying state-of-the-art research and thought leadership to implement solutions that will achieve results.

During the program, the faculty director weaves the “golden thread� of the program, laying out the road map for participants and demonstrating how the program builds to achieve the objective.

It is against University policy for a representative to contact the embassy directly for a participant.

If you would like to request this letter, please contact execed@columbia.edu. *Columbia Business School Executive Education is not responsible for travel or related costs under any circumstances. Participants may want to consider purchasing trip cancellation insurance in the unlikely event that a program is cancelled or they cannot attend for personal or professional reasons.

**For any program with more than two iterations in an enrollment year, tuition is non-refundable after second transfer.
