By submitting my data I agree to be contacted

The ProEd Membership Program brings together a highly successful group of schools, professionals, faculty, and thought leaders in executive education to share unique resources and best practices throughout the year. The goal of the Membership Program is to provide management and executive education centers access to proven strategies, research data, best practices, and a variety of resources to help increase business opportunities and, most importantly, maintain quality while improving the bottom line. Member organizations also will receive discounts on events and training programs, as well as real-time access to a long list of reports and assessments.

Current shifts in higher education dramatically challenge the status quo of many management and executive education centers. The pandemic accelerated several impactful prevailing trends such as an ever-changing economic climate, globalization, increasingly fluid and flexible workforces, new delivery technologies, evolving customer demands and expectations, and a rethinking of the role universities play in the business community. They combine to shape the strategies and operations of executive and professional education centers.

In light of what seems to be a constant state of flux, more and more centers are in need of external proven guidance and support, especially in the following areas:

  • More effectively addressing the challenges facing corporate customers and clients
  • Recruiting and retaining new employees
  • Employee training and industry onboarding
  • Program marketing
  • Calculating Return on Investment (ROI) of various initiatives
  • Research on the current state of our industry and sharing of best practices
  • Identifying and evaluating programs that are easily added to a center’s portfolio
  • Information from “thought leaders” in and related to our industry
  • Vendor vetting
  • Marketing, registration and delivery systems evaluation, selection and implementation
  • Building business acumen for yourself and your staff
  • and more

In order to more effectively address these issues and provide centers with support and necessary resources, we are excited to invite you to become a ProEd Member!
