Executive education courses boost career prospects

There’s no such thing as too much education.

Because of the pandemic and the dramatic increase in online education, executive education programs have grown dramatically.

Market research firm Ken Research’s latest study suggests that demand for executive education programs will continue to dominate in the U.S. owing to the introduction of new courses and improving technology for online programs.

Ken Research found that corporate professionals prefer executive education programs over full-time MBA programs, which take more time and money.

The University of Houston’s Bauer College Executive Education program, for example, is designed to enhance the capabilities and competencies of executives.


“The goal of the program is to ‘create a dynamic learning experience to give working professionals short-term training in areas relevant to their career development and growth,’” said Gary Randazzo, UH’s director of executive education.

To offer timely courses, Bauer is launching a Mini-MBA that will give students an understanding of the most important functions of business and management in only one week.

“The Mini-MBA program is a blend of high-quality instruction within a consolidated timeframe,” said Randazzo.

The Mini-MBA is ideal for experienced professionals who want to update or broaden their business knowledge and skills, as well as individuals without a business background who want to work more effectively with senior management or transition into management rolls. The Executive Education program is also designed for those who are considering a graduate degree and want to gain an overview of MBA fundamentals.

The best part is “the Mini-MBA certificate may provide credit toward a full MBA degree program,” Randazzo said.

Bauer also offers a successful Women in Leadership program.

“It is designed by women for women to explore unique leadership styles; develop personal policies; skills and implementable action plans to increase happiness and decrease stress, and develop a portfolio of negotiation skills that can help manage conflict and navigate the business landscape,” Randazzo said.
