TEP Fees & Admissions Information

TEP Admission Policy: Participants represent a broad range of backgrounds — industries, geographic locations, organizational size and professional responsibilities are considered. Although the number of participants from any one organization may be limited, firms are encouraged to send more than one executive. Admission is based on consultation among the three parties concerned: the nominating company, the applicant and a committee of the TEP faculty that evaluates the candidate's application. Notice of confirmed admission to TEP will be sent as soon as the process is complete.

Schedule and Cost: TEP runs from Sunday evening, 2 June, to noon on Friday, 28 June 2013. Registration is from 3:00–5:00 p.m. on Sunday, 2 June. The program will open with a reception on Sunday, followed by dinner at the Abbott Center dining room. There will be no classes the weekend of 14–16 June. There is a half-day of classes on this Friday. A detailed schedule, listing the final class prior to that weekend and also noting when classes resume, will be given to participants upon arrival.

The cost of TEP 2013 is $43,000. This includes tuition, study materials, lodging, most meals and certificate of participation. The Guest Program participant's meals and the sharing of the TEP participant's Inn at Darden accommodations are also included in this fee.
