Custom programs blend scholarly research and practical approaches to address your organization’s specific challenges. We see custom programming as a partnership, leveraging collaboration to create an effective experience.
Each custom program is carefully designed to fulfill your organization's specific needs. The process begins with a needs assessment and contextual analysis of the challenges you are facing. Faculty members play a key role in program development. At the earliest stages of consultation, faculty directors delve into the problem that needs to be solved and develop cutting-edge strategies and tactics to address it. The second phase is a collaborative effort among our faculty members, designated representatives from your organization, and the Columbia account management team. Working closely with you, Columbia designs a program that addresses the challenges outlined in the needs assessment.
Custom programs often deliver a diverse mix of case application, role-playing, group discussion, and short, focused lectures. The process is iterative: whether it is adjusting the program’s length or shifting content focus, our faculty members are experienced in fine-tuning programs to respond to an organization’s specific parameters and goals.Discover more about Custom Programs >
