The Economist is launching “The Economist Executive Education,” an online executive education program.
The initiative is created by Economist journalists and features global experts.
The course is designed for senior leaders and executives across a range of industries and will deliver actionable insights, practical skills and networking opportunities to help participants advance in their careers and shape the future of their organizations.
The content will be available for all sectors of business, finance, technology, professional services, public policy, nonprofit and government, and will be delivered through videos, podcasts and guest talks from global leaders.
“The Economist’s executive education program will bring the rigor and intelligence we apply to our journalism to the growing world of online education. The courses, conceived and written by our reporters and editors, will deliver practical insights and stimulating analysis on the most pressing topics and themes” said Bob Cohn, president, The Economist.
The first six-week course, “The New Global Order: How Politics, Business and Technology are Changing,” is scheduled for May.
