CENTERS OF EXCELLENCE

When it comes to the programs and resources that Executive Programs is fortunate to draw from, it’s an embarrassment of riches. Our location in the Poole College of Management—the only business school in North Carolina expressly chartered to focus on the management of technology—gives us full and immediate access to a number of initiatives, programs and curricula. We call these “Centers of Excellence,” and it’s easy to see why:

  • Whether designed to serve and promote an industry, a capability or degree candidates, these initiatives boast stellar team members and a growing stakeholder base
  • They command the respect and involvement of local executives at some of the most influential technology and bioscience companies in the world
  • Business Collaboratories are inspired, influenced and informed by our close relationship with these Centers of Excellence.
