This multi-day event, August 3-5, is designed for today’s and tomorrow’s higher education business leaders. It offers four tracks of programming for multiple career levels. Track 1 is designed for developing early-stage professionals and those new to higher education business and administration. Content for Tracks 2, 3 & 4 progresses to address the professional development needs of increasingly experienced, decision-making professionals. There are two general sessions for all attendees.

  • Tracks 1 is designed for high-potential individuals in the earlier stages of their career. The curriculum includes skills-based courses in accounting for accountants and non-accountants, presenting financial information, strategies for managing your higher-education career, employer documentation, professional presence, understanding analytics, and more. Plus, there are two afternoons with a variety of elective courses.
  • Track 2 continues with skills-based curriculum, such as budgeting, navigating audits and risk management and includes human-resource content on understanding and working with others, team building, setting expectations, and communications. Track 2 also participates in two afternoons of elective courses.
  • Track 3 is highly interactive with a focus on small group case study discussions for a significant portion of the classroom time. Regular course time includes content on leadership, managing change, organizational culture, cyber security and campus legal issues.
  • Track 4 has a variety of management topics such as metrics and data visualization, leadership and legal issues, with a focus on strategic planning. Topics in this two-day, workshop-type focus on strategic planning include SWOT, strategy mapping, process improvement, action planning and leading change through planning. In Track 4, participants are highly engaged in practicing the science and skills of planning.
