FROM WHARTON: LEADING TODAY’S TALENT: MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES FOR AN EVOLVING WORKFORCE
The Aresty Institute of Executive Education at University of Pennsylvania’s The Wharton School, will launch a new open-enrollment executive program this fall. Leading Today’s Talent: Management Strategies for an Evolving Workforce will hold its first cohort October 9-13 on Wharton’s Philadelphia campus.
The program was designed with Wharton People Analytics to equip leaders with data-driven approaches to navigate the future of work. It includes sessions on people analytics, managing the remote workplace, creating an inclusive workplace, emotional intelligence, and AI and the future of work.
Courses will be taught by renowned Wharton faculty, including Matthew Bidwell, Peter Cappelli, Mary-Hunter McDonnell and Marissa King.
“We’ve just experienced one of the biggest changes to the way we work in the last 40 years,” says Bidwell, Wharton professor of management and program academic director. “Open a newspaper, and there’s a plethora of headlines about ‘the future of work.’ This program covers the most important, research-based methods for successfully managing people, while also mindfully exploring how to prepare for what’s to come.”
“This program is for people who manage people,” says Bidwell. “These could be executives who are functional experts that are taking on increasing responsibilities, often outside of the scope of their expertise. We want to help these leaders tackle the challenges of building and managing teams as well as developing new perspectives and ideas on how to move forward.”
Applications are now available online here, and the cost of the program is $12,000. A second cohort will be held in March.
DARTMOUTH TUCK LAUNCHES MASTER OF HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business and Geisel School of Medicine are creating a new joint-degree program aimed at early-career health care professionals.
The Master of Health Administration, launching in June 2024, will prepare students to develop, plan, and manage operations and services within health care facilities and across health care systems. While most MHA degrees are delivered through schools of public health, Dartmouth’s is the only MHA delivered in partnership between an Ivy League medical school and a top-ranked business school, according to a press release.
Dartmouth’s business and medical school first collaborated in 2010 for the Master of Health Care Delivery Science (MHCDS) program. Like MHCDS, the MHA program will be hybrid with candidates coming to the Dartmouth campus twice for five-day periods while engaging in high-touch online courses. Students will also have the option of completing the degree on either a two-year, or an accelerated one-year path.
Applications will open this summer. Tuition is $77,500 for both the accelerated or two-year paths along with $4,982 in fees per year.
