Smith Executive Education for Women seeks to provide women at every level of the organization the knowledge, competencies and innovative insights to drive change, performance and success.
The Vision of Smith Executive Education
At Smith, our goal with Executive Education is to help women learn and grow across their lifespans. We are committed to building world-class leadership. And we also focus on helping women achieve greater professional satisfaction and work-life integration. To achieve these objectives, we offer intensive executive learning experiences in all-female settings.
Create programs based on research, knowledge and understanding of today’s global business needs and priorities and led by thought leaders from around the globe.
Address current issues facing women in business including self-reflection, wellness, and the pursuit of an integrated and balanced life that enhances leadership capacity.
Build networks of professional peers in an environment that encourages authenticity, risk-taking and accelerated leadership learning.
Smith's approach to executive education blends academic rigor with a discussion of real world business issues in an environment where women also build bonds of trust, mutual respect, common experience and personal friendship that often last many years. When women's executive education is designed this way, it not only makes for effective and meaningful learning, but also creates experiences that are often life changing for participants.
