“Since its launch in 2020, the Executive Fellows program has enabled HBS to engage with a remarkable collection of talented practitioners,” says Professor Len Schlesinger, chair of the program. “The breadth and depth of experience that these individuals bring to our community is beyond impressive, and their real-world perspectives and practical observations provide a rich complement to the learning and teaching that takes place on our campus. We are incredibly fortunate to benefit from their time and expertise.”

MCCOMBS SCHOOL CREATES SUSTAINABILITY LEADERSHIP FOR EXECS
McCombs Schools of Business at University of Texas at Austin is offering a 9- to 12-month Sustainability Leadership Program for executives with a minimum of 10 years work experience. The online program costs $15,500 and starts in late February.
“It’s an exciting time for business, but it’s also a challenging time because it’s requiring a number of new skills from the CEO down to the individual contributors,” says Meeta Kothare, faculty director. “We envision a regenerative global economy and society. That means that we have to figure out how businesses can innovate and support solutions to these big systemic and global problems.”
The program is best suited for executives wanting to incorporate sustainability into their businesses, executives aspiring to become chief sustainability officers and nonprofit professionals aiming to improve their executive skills.
While the program is self-paced, participants can also enroll their teams to learn alongside them. The program culminates in a capstone project where participants apply their learnings to their organization.
