Executive Education

I teach in a wide range of open enrollment executive courses delivered in person or online as SPOCs (Small Private Online Courses). I co-direct two in-person executive programs – Delivering Business Growth and Managing and Sustaining a Culture of Innovation.  I also teach in several other open enrollment programs, including Kellogg on Branding, the Customer-Focused Organization, and the Advanced Executive Development Program. More details on these courses are below:

Online Programs

I have developed four successful small private online courses (SPOCs):

Digital Marketing Strategies

The proliferation of new technologies such as mobile, cloud computing and artificial intelligence have transformed customer behavior and disrupted marketplaces. As a result, marketing practices must also evolve. Marketing in a digital world is much more than marketing through digital channels; it’s about harnessing automation to make marketing practices more productive and agile, mining new sources of customer data to create personalized communications, and leveraging analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) to optimize marketing activities. In this 8-week online program you will gain an end-to-end perspective of the modern marketing process that starts with gathering customer insights, moves through content strategies and execution, and culminates in optimization and AI applications.

Product Strategy

Every company that sees technology as a competitive differentiator needs a product strategy. And every person who touches a product inside of an organization directly contributes to its success or failure. In this program, you learn a cradle-to-grave approach for managing and optimizing the life of a product or service. You will be equipped to think like the CEO of your product or service, all in a flexible, online format. Throughout the program’s eight weeks, you will have the opportunity to engage in interactive, thoughtful discussions with faculty, subject matter experts and your peers.

Artificial Intelligence: Strategies for Leading Business Transformation

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has moved into the mainstream of business, driven by advances in cloud computing, big data, open source software, and improved algorithms. As AI technologies impact how we work, live, and manage businesses, organizational leaders, innovators, and investors are looking to harness the power of AI to create customer value and a competitive advantage. his program will stretch your thinking and broaden your perspectives with a practical, behind-the-scenes look at how established companies – as well as start-ups – are putting AI to work to disrupt industries and gain a competitive edge.

Professional Certificate in Digital Marketing

Marketing in a digital world is so much more than “digital marketing.” It’s a discipline that is driven by data, scaled through automation and optimized by analytics – all while maintaining a customer-centric focus. Demand is strong for marketers who can aptly navigate this evolving field.

The Professional Certificate in Digital Marketing program provides a launchpad for advancing your career in digital marketing. Participants will gain a broad overview of the digital marketing landscape, develop the in-demand skills that hiring managers are seeking, and discover their own unique niche in this rapidly expanding domain.
