Human Capital leaders need high quality academic programs with relevance to current workforce challenges.

James F. Sheegog, the founder of Rowhill Consulting Group joins the faculty team at George Mason University responsible for delivering the inaugural Executive Chief Learning Officer (ECLO) certificate program. This ECLO course is the only university program of its kind.

Drawing on the expertise of world-class faculty from the School of Business and the Learning Technologies Division of the College of Education and Human Development, this six-month program is grounded in cutting-edge research and proven practices from industry thought leaders with a solid track record linking learning and development to business goals.

Mr. Sheegog will teach strategic thinking dimensions, which examines real case studies from nearly 30 years of advisory work around the globe. The program blends distance-learning technologies with residential faculty sessions at the Arlington, VA campus. Other topics address in the ECLO program includes, financial decision making, quantitative evaluation, learning analytics, learning technology innovations, and leadership.

This is not Mr. Sheegog's first foray into pioneering educational models.

In 1996, as the Assistant Dean at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, he launched the Global Executive MBA degree program- the first ever MBA degree delivered through both online learning technologies and with international residencies in Munich, Shanghai, and Sao Paolo.

In 1999, as CLO at PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Mr. Sheegog led the world’s largest professional services firm to web-based learning technologies that provided high value continuing education to over 28,000 of the firm’s staff.

In 2003, Mr. Sheegog was asked by Royal Dutch Shell to refresh their global leadership development efforts for nearly 5,000 of their top managers in Africa, Asia, South America, and the Middle East Regions.

In 2005 he was asked to build an intensive six month development experience for senior managers at Gulfstream Aerospace as the company moved into a rapidly shifting global market.

In 2014, his firm developed a human capital approach centered on both talent management and corporate culture change for a global petrochemical corporation headquartered in the UAE.

As part of the ECLO faculty, Mr. Sheegog plans to bring the lessons learned from these strategic engagements to emerging human capital leaders participating in the six-month course at George Mason University.
