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
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.”

navigate uncertainty, join a webinar
