Custom Corporate Programs

UST Executive Education tailors programs for our corporate clients to meet the development needs of their employees. The links on this page will help you identify potential solutions to performance issues you want to address.

Leadership Development
Our Leadership Development programs can help your leaders build on their strengths and focus on their development opportunities to be more effective in their role. Our more popular leadership programs address such concerns as:

  • The ability to analyze financial data to determine the impact of specific events or decisions on your business, including the connection between business unit budgets and financial management of the greater organization
  • Having a clear strategic direction, alignment of organizational and line of business strategies, and effective implementation of strategies
  • Gaps in overall leadership generally found in new leaders, such as ineffective communication or negotiation skills, performance or change management, or approaches to team development

Project Management
Our Project Management programs may be appropriate for your employees. Potential performance concerns may reveal themselves in your organization through:

  • The inability of project managers to complete projects on time
  • Projects consistently coming in over budget
  • Miscommunication or misinformation is a reoccurring trend rather than an uncommon occurrence
  • Project managers are limited in their capacity to take on additional work

Management of Non-Profit Organizations

  • Raise, manage and align funds and resources
  • Develop and stabilize organizational infrastructure
  • Identify and satisfy the needs of constituents
  • Recruit, develop, and support board members, paid staff and volunteers
