Abstract

The faculty leader for the custom executive education (EE) program at a business school has received an e-mail from a program client asking him to remove a member of the program's teaching team. It causes him to reflect on the distinctive differences between EE teaching and MBA teaching and the need to codify those differences in developing highly effective and successful EE instructors.

JACK DRAKE'S QUESTION:

WHAT MAKES A GREAT EXECUTIVE EDUCATION INSTRUCTOR?

At a Faculty Lunch Table

“Has anyone ever gotten an e-mail from an executive education (EE) custom program client like the one I got today asking me to remove Mike Bates from the program's teaching team?” asked Jack Drake, a senior faculty member at the business school. Drake also served as the faculty leader for the custom EE program the school had designed the year before and was now delivering twice a year for Reliant Transport Services Company (RTS), a major transportation logistics company. Just before lunch, he had received an e-mail from the chief HR officer (CHRO) of that company.
