The opening of the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics is the beginning of new, exciting business programs that will focus on helping a new generation become business leaders. The UNH Women’s Leadership and Development Program and the Next Level Executive Development Program will take place in the new building, located on Garrison Avenue across from Stoke Hall after the building opens in January 2013. Each of the programs will run for a week.
The Next Level Executive Development Program focuses on helping workers in the corporate or non-profit business field that have recently been or are going to be promoted. The weeklong program is based off of Scott Eblin’s book, “The Next Level, What Insiders Know About Executive Success.”
The program is geared to assist potential leaders on the executive track in learning the tools necessary to become a senior leader in any sector of the business world. The focus includes steps to achieving the next level through leadership, networking, analytical thinking and executive planning.
Some of the instructors and coaches include, Daniel McCarthy, Scott Eblin, Elizabeth Freedman, Thomas Gross, and Peter Lane. The program is scheduled to run April 8 to 12 and Oct. 21 to 25 of 2013.
The UNH Women’s Leadership Development Program will be held from March 4 to 8 and Sept. 16 to 20 of 2013. The program is geared toward assisting women who are working their way to executive positions in the private and public sector. The focus is to address the issues that women face as they move up in rank in the business world and to develop ways to combat these issues. Instructors and coaches include Christine Shea, Vanessa Druskat, Ann Perschel, Beth Kerr, and Deborah Kolb.
The program is also open to non-UNH graduates and alumni.
“From my perspective, one of the key things the business school will be achieving by offering open enrollment programs will be to widen our outreach to the business community – to both large corporations and smaller businesses,” Executive Development Program Coordinator Josina Garnham said.
The cost of each program is $4,500 and includes program materials and meals, but does not include housing. There is a 10 percent discount for all UNH alumni who attend the programs.
Daniel McCarthy is the director of the executive development programs and is also teaching the Next Level Executive Development Program.
“These programs not only enrich the business community through professional learning and development experiences, but also provide real-world context for our faculty, which informs their teaching and research,” Garnham said.
These programs are a great way for companies to invest in their employees and their future executive leaders. More information is available at www.wsbe.unh.edu/edp.
