Executive Courses, a New Directory of Executive Education Programs Worldwide, is Launched

Users can browse thousands of executive courses, by location or subject

Executive Courses, a directory of executive education programs offered by top business schools around the world, has just launched.

This new website includes extensive listings of thousands of open-enrollment courses, which can be sorted by topic or location. Users can also read articles about executive education and find information about individual business schools.

Generally speaking, executive courses are typically aimed at professionals who do not want to commit to a full degree program such as an MBA, but who would still like to build up their skills in business. 

Those who are interested in executive education have a huge number of options. Many attend courses at their local business schools, where they can learn about topics such as entrepreneurship or finance, for example, as well as build a strong local network. Others may decide instead to travel further for their executive education courses, and look for offerings at top business schools with global reputations or those that produce strong research in specific fields of business. Increasingly, many executive courses are also being offered in an online format, so that professionals can attend them from the comfort of their own home (or office).

Some executive programs are very short (several days long or less). These allow participants to quickly get up to date in various business topics, such as business analytics or supply chain management. Other courses are longer (either one or more weeks long, or several weeks spread out over a certain amount of time). Yet others are longer still and may even award a degree or a diploma (for example, a General Management Program, or GMP, covers many aspects of business and may take a year to complete.)
