Transform. Inspire. Achieve.

The UC Davis Executive Leadership Program is a transformational experience that will give you a deeper understanding of your strengths and how to grow your capacity as a leader.

The program’s eight seminars create a unique, powerful space for self-reflection and analysis. One-on-one coaching, 360-degree feedback and dynamic peer interaction provide a path for achieving your goals and new approaches for leading with authenticity and impact.

The UC Davis Executive Leadership Program is taught by seasoned instructors and executives from a variety of industries. They will facilitate your journey through the program, using case studies, research and their own “in-the-trenches” experience to challenge and expand your thinking.

We invite you to join a select cohort of your peers in this truly impactful opportunity to transform as a leader, inspire your team and achieve new levels of success. We will next offer the Executive Leadership Program in Spring 2021. Learn about our program structure and read seminar descriptions here.

Exceptional Value

Tuition includes all instructional materials, a 360-degree assessment to provide feedback on specific, critical leadership skills, parking and dinner with your cohort each session. Enrollment deadline is TBD.

Many executive programs charge more than $10,000 for a curriculum of this caliber. We think you will agree that the UC Davis Executive Leadership Program is an extraordinary value that includes exceptional faculty and the opportunity to network with leaders from Northern California's top organizations.

The Format

We understand your time is valuable. So we've designed the Executive Leadership Program to complement your schedule. Most executive programs require you to be away from the office for a full week or two at a time. As you know, this kind of interruption can significantly disrupt your usual work flow and take time away from pressing responsibilities. Our format allows you to integrate what you are learning immediately.

We also include dinner with each session, so you can spend time sharing ideas with fellow classmates. The friendly, informal atmosphere provides ample time to make important contacts and deepen discussions of program topics.
