A Project-Based Approach to Executive Education
Jacobson, Dax; Chapman, Richard; Ye, Christine; Van Os, Jerry
Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education, v15 n1 p42-61 Jan 2017
Executive education (EE) has been an important part of business school offerings for nearly as long as there have been business schools. Similarly, business schools were among the first in higher education to adopt online approaches as a means for course delivery. Despite this experience, few business schools have been able to successfully integrate EE with online delivery approaches. This study suggests that a project-based approach can achieve EE/online delivery integration. The case is first made for a project-based approach by telling the story of our institution's journey toward a project-based EE model. Challenges, successes, and plans for the future are then discussed.
