Why enroll in our executive programs?

Here’s what program alumni have to say about CEE’s slate of courses—and how they’ve translated the knowledge gained into organizational success.

"I've already sent five staff members to this course . . . and I'll send more on a targeted basis. It's a phenomenal course to effect change in an organization. This is the most value-added course I have ever attended!"

—Medical Commander, U.S. Air Force

"Exceptionally good course. Superb organization and delivery of curriculum from the start." 

—Leadership Instructor, TSM Corporation

"I completed my MBA over 10 years ago after leaving the Air Force. This class has been an excellent refresher and update to my MBA at a time in my career where the material is very pertinent. The class hit on exactly the topics that were of interest to me and the instructors did a great job of applying the material to the real world."

—Operations Manager, Alcoa

"I'm writing to express my sincere appreciation for your Lean for Healthcare session. Although I've had some experience leading projects, the class was a great opportunity to refresh and refocus. Contributions from all the faculty were full of shared experiences and learning, and the support staff made things flow smoothly in a way that indicates extensive planning and coordination.

I will highly recommend your course to healthcare colleagues as a great value (in every sense of the word!), for the content and also for the rich learning experience."

—Senior Consultant, TechSolve

"This was very informative and opened my mind to changes that prior to this class seemed impossible."

—Nurse Manager, Veterans Administration

"Instructors were professional and kept the instruction fun, not dry!"

—Senior PI Specialist, WellSpan Health

"Best class I've ever taken, and I've been in school my entire life!"

—Faculty Physician and Faculty Member, University of Tennessee Graduate School of Medicine
