The University of Washington Bothell School of Business is collaborating with the Carol Sanford Institute to create The Responsible Business Executive Education Program. The executive education certificate program offers a path to the future of business by offering a revolutionary approach on executive educator and author Carol Sanford’s experience as to what the business of the future looks like and how to create it. Applications are being accepted now through February 1, 2016 and classes will begin in March.
“A solid understanding of the relationship between responsible management and long-term sustainable growth is imperative to the success of current and future entrepreneurs and executives,” says School of Business Dean Sandeep Krishnamurthy. “There is no better expert to lead this innovative program than Carol, who brings years of corporate and academic experience.”
The certificate program is designed for growth-minded entrepreneurs and business executives. It requires approximately 12 days plus monthly webinars during the year and is divided into three trimesters: Strategic Thinking; Leadership of Change; and Operations and Work Design. Participants will work with a small community of entrepreneurs and business unit leaders who are all committed to building and growing a great business, responsibly.
Sanford, author of the award-winning books, The Responsible Business and The Responsible Entrepreneur, will lead the program as its Director and its teaching faculty. She has also been named an Executive in Residence for the campus. Her extensive experience as a business executive educator for nearly forty years and across nearly thirty industries has made her a respected guest lecturer at Harvard, MIT, Stanford and Ross Michigan. Sanford’s books are required reading at over one hundred universities including Harvard, Stanford, Babson and University of Michigan.
Krishnamurthy says the program enables the UW Bothell School of Business to deepen its commitment to the Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative, the first organized relationship between the United Nations and business schools created to inspire and champion responsible management education, research and thought leadership globally.
