CEO College

CEO College

The CEO College is a unique program created at the request of, and with the participation of, some of the world’s top CEOs and leadership scholars. With this combined knowledge and experience, Yale developed a program that offers select corporate officers a learning experience that is short, intensive, and hands-on.

The CEO College is a highly customized program for a select group of 15-20 corporate officers, and is designed for executives reporting to the CEO or top management team.  The program is by invitation only and focuses on senior executives who have significant line or functional responsibilities.  The CEO College is meant for an active learner, and many of our participants have an MBA; all have equivalent experience. 

With its roundtable and CEO Summit components, the CEO College is smaller, more selective, less time-consuming, and more tailored to individual executives than any other executive program in the country.

CEO College features

  • Small group of next-generation executive committee members
  • Concise, customized curriculum
  • Internationally renowned leadership scholars from the faculties of Yale, Harvard, Columbia, Dartmouth, Chicago, INSEAD, London Business School, Stanford, Emory, and others
  • Expert leadership style feedback with on-site personal coaching
  • Applied learning with immediate, measurable value
