Custom Corporate Programs

Custom program in action Mason Hall Rotunda

For organizations and large groups, we work closely with clients to customize content and format of programs to target specific organizations and/or industries. Customized programs create a think-tank environment within the company that increases individual and organizational success.

Five key domains will drive profitable and sustainable growth.

For businesses across the country, and around the globe, profitable and sustainable growth is the new imperative. Every CEO knows it, and the successful ones are focused on it. In today’s competitive marketplace, growth in revenues, customers and profits will not happen without individual growth among employees. Companies must specifically commit to growing their leaders’ knowledge, skills, perspective, confidence and creativity.

Moreover, that growth must come across five key domains. These are the areas where we are focused – from our faculty expertise and academic research, to our collaboration with our business partners, to our executive education partnerships and programs. By focusing on these key domains, we are able to create capable and energized leaders who can leverage their individual growth to help drive their company’s growth.

Program Design


Our approach to program design is part of a larger partnership that we establish with our clients. This partnership takes us inside the company to more fully understand the development needs and goals of the company. Clear input and collaboration with our clients is essential to connect the program experience to the strategic initiatives, and the cultural imperatives, of the company.

  • Open/Close Virtual Learning Note

    It’s no secret that some of the most meaningful experiences in our lives are now happening in ways we may never have imagined possible. Whether that’s in response to unprecedented disruption, industry changes or consumer preference, The Ohio State University’s Executive Education programs recognize the incredible value that customized and virtual offerings can provide today’s executives.

    This singular focus on meeting our students where they are at has long differentiated Ohio State as a leader in executive education.

    By understanding who our clients are, where they want to go and how they want to get there, we tailor experiences to meet their needs. We pride ourselves on our in-person curriculum delivery but fully realize there are aspects of this differentiator that cannot be fully replicated virtually.

    What does that mean for you? It means a commitment from us to deepen our focus on the powerful and innovative learning experiences we offer online — be it asynchronous, synchronous, blended models or concurrent sessions. We’ve created a wide array of these learning experiences and they are effective. How do we know? Our students and clients tell us.

    So, if your learning or professional development efforts have stalled, or you’re looking to build relevant skills necessary in today’s dynamic business environment, talk to us.
