“In a world with a lot of theory and great ideas, it’s not enough to just present concepts to students; we have to give professionals the tools to put theory to practice. We pride ourselves on our rigorous curriculum that leans heavily on applied learning and can be immediately implemented into participants’ daily lives.”

—⁠ Joe Carella, Assistant Dean of Eller Executive Education
