Executive Education Program
The Executive Education Program is one of the most prestigious leadership programs in the nation. Offered through the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, the Executive Education Program works with the government, nonprofit agencies, and the private sector to prepare leaders and managers to meet today’s challenges and anticipate tomorrow’s opportunities.
The Executive Education Program offers graduate-level programs at four sites nationally: Washington, D.C.; Seattle, Washington; Indianapolis, Indiana, for the United States Navy; and Louisville, Kentucky, for the United States Army Corps of Engineers. Graduate programs include the Master of Public Affairs (M.P.A.), the Public Management Certificate, and the Environmental Management Certificate.
The Executive Education Program has formed a partnership with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), which also meets in Indianapolis. Together, they have created two institutes to challenge and educate transportation managers and leaders. The National Transportation Leadership Institute and the Graduate Leadership/Management Institute are two of the most influential programs for transportation management.
The Executive Education Program’s partnership with the Indiana Health and Hospital Association (EHHA) created a 10-course management institute for health care officials in Indiana to help them lead their organizations through the continually changing health care industry. The Executive Education Program has also partnered with Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department to develop specialized 15 credit hour graduate certificates for emerging leaders.
SPEA’s Executive Education Program also offers customized leadership and management programs for local and national clients.
