Executive education

World-class professional development

Our executive education programmes empower organisations across the globe to turn ‘business as usual’ into something more productive.

Whether you’re looking to boost your own skills, develop your team, or embrace large-scale organisational change, you benefit from a business education, not merely training. Our programmes are offered by world-renowned University of Essex academics and leading associates from the private sector.

Executive education at Essex Business School is interactive and inspiring; you learn more when you construct, develop and share knowledge as a group. We develop you as an individual and equip you with knowledge that has a real impact on your organisation.
