New 9-12-month programs, presented with Emeritus, are designed for senior working professionals across all industries seeking executive strategy and leadership skills, with participants receiving a Wharton Executive Education certificate and credits towards Wharton Alumni Network application
The Aresty Institute of Executive Education at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania has partnered with Emeritus, the global leader in making world-class education accessible and affordable, to launch two new programs for senior executives: the Digital Transformation for CxOs Program and the Global CxO Program. Both programs are 9-12-month learning journeys that feature a faculty of esteemed thought leaders, industry guest speakers, immersive online modules, and a choice of electives. Participants will also explore real-world case studies and work on exercises designed to apply their program insights in their roles and organizations.
Leaders across all C-Suite functions are encouraged to apply, including current and those aspiring to Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO), Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Chief Technology Officer (CTO), and similar roles.
Each program concludes with a two-day on-campus networking and graduation event. Executives who complete the program will receive a Wharton Executive Education digital certificate, which also provides one credit towards the six required to complete Wharton’s esteemed General Management Program, and puts learners on a pathway to apply for the Wharton Alumni Network. Both new CxO programs are currently enrolling for a June 2022 start.
The Digital Transformation for CxOs Program
According to a recent report, 89% of companies say that digital transformation is currently a priority. For it to succeed, leadership must extend beyond the technology function to ensure that all verticals throughout the organization are aligned to embrace new initiatives. The Wharton Executive Education Digital Transformation for CxOs Program is specifically designed to address this shift.
“Digital transformation is increasingly critical for the success of any organization, and harnessing its potential goes far beyond the chief technology officer’s purview. CxOs across functions are now expected to be involved in leveraging emerging technologies to generate new value propositions while influencing their teams and internal stakeholders to embrace new initiatives. We at Wharton Executive Education are delighted to offer this comprehensive program to help C-suite leaders forge growth-led digital strategies and build innovative digital solutions to sustain transformation,” says Rahul Kapoor, academic director of the Digital Transformation for CxOs Program; David W. Hauck Professor; and professor of management at the Wharton School.
“As a key member of the C-suite, those who choose to invest in their development can stay ahead of digital disruptions and ensure that their organization remains competitive. We at Emeritus are excited to collaborate with Wharton Executive Education in helping senior professionals build a perspective on the future,” says Lisa Rohrer, president of university partnerships at Emeritus.
The Digital Transformation for CxOs Program is priced at US$20,000, which includes teaching fees, all academic material, and access to online coursework. The program starts on June 21, 2022, and is now open to learners around the world, for enrollment through Emeritus.
The Global CxO Program
According to McKinsey & Co., 83% of global leaders feel unprepared for their new roles. Today’s globally connected world demands new leadership skills with an unconventional approach to business. Expanded global C-suite responsibilities require an increased focus on the customer experience and an eye for disruption and innovation in any function. The Wharton Executive Education Global CxO Program is specifically designed to cater to this growing need.
“Organizations across the world are undergoing massive changes in the way they function and conduct business. This paradigm shift has necessitated the need for CxOs who can effectively grasp the changing dynamics of the business landscape and strategize for success. The Global CxO Program from Wharton Executive Education has been designed to help senior executives sharpen their skills to lead in the evolving business environment,” says Emilie R. Feldman, academic director for the Global CxO Program and professor of management at the Wharton School.
“This program will help global C-suite executives effectively lead strategy in their organizations and drive their functions toward success. We at Emeritus are excited to collaborate with Wharton Executive Education in helping senior leaders accelerate their impact,” says Lisa Rohrer, president of university partnerships at Emeritus.
