A Qualitative/Quantitative Analysis of the Administrative Management Institute at Cornell University.
Brown-Wright, Dianne
This study examined the characteristics, experiences, and recommendations of 43 participants in the Administrative Management Institute (AMI) at Cornell University (New York). Analysis of the first surveys led to two annual follow-up surveys that focused on how participants financed their AMI studies and on additional AMI opportunities desired. Specifically, the study investigated participant demographics, rationale for attendance, financing, prior management-related training, evaluation of AMI experience in relation to previous management development experience, career aspirations, and recommendations for additional training opportunities and networking. Analysis of participants' responses and the results of participant observations are presented in each category. Results suggest that although the Cornell AMI program was geared primarily toward the business affairs side of the higher education enterprise, the program is potentially attractive to a much more diverse group of administrative managers; that the focus of the program might be expanded, in terms of both target population and content; and that this study should be replicated to identify program changes since the program's inception and since completion of the study. Graphs and tables are appended. (Contains 27 references.) (MAH)
