Darden Executive Education Program for Senior Executives Announces Residency in Washington DC

07 Feb 2017 By Julie Daum
  • At a moment when all eyes are on Washington, D.C., the University of Virginia Darden School Foundation announces that its flagship executive education program for senior leaders, The Executive Program (TEP), will host a residency in the Washington, D.C., area, where the UVA Darden School has a growing presence.

    In an intense climate of change, TEP — which will take place 4–23 June 2017 at Darden in Charlottesville, Virginia — will equip senior-level executives from around the world with the skills they need to crystallize their vision and navigate change.

    “Leaders today are required to understand and affect significant change in an era of unprecedented uncertainty,” said faculty leader Alan Beckenstein. “Changes in the global macro-economy, along with challenges in the political culture in many nations are disrupting business models. Engaging with diverse global leaders will allow participants to develop their own global view from Washington, D.C.”

    Over the three-day, Washington, D.C. residency, the executives will connect directly with global thought leaders and policymakers on subjects including trade policy, immigration policy, global markets, cybersecurity and more.

    Now in its 58th year, TEP shapes leaders from around the world for organizations’ highest roles. The program has a worldwide network of nearly 4,000 alumni, many representing Fortune 100 companies and global institutions. Past TEP graduates — representing companies such as Boeing, Celgene, IBM, Komatsu, Walmart, Ingersoll Rand, Guinness and Credit Suisse, among many others — note their ability to reinvent their organizations after completing the program.

    “The Executive Program at Darden provides an avenue in which a diverse group of leaders can come together to discuss world economics, banking, trade, transportation, real estate and manufacturing across wide range of applications,” said Elton Wright Jr. (TEP ’16) of Boeing. “TEP encourages dialogue and worldwide cooperation to provide back-home solutions to a wide array of issues confronting leaders.”

    To hear more about how TEP participants will learn to navigate uncertainty, join a webinar on 28 February at 1 p.m. EST or contact Casey Floyd at FloydC@darden.virginia.edu or +1-434-243-4400.

    The TEP residency will be based in Rosslyn, Virginia, where the Darden School of Business maintains a state-of-the-art learning location at which it delivers both Executive Education short courses and the Darden Executive MBA.
