The Executive Education Committee discusses business school management issues, challenges and opportunities relating to Executive Education and it also advises the Council on policy in relation to these. The Committee champions the work of Executive Education within the UK business school community and to external audiences including business, government, and the wider university community in order to promote excellence within executive education,

In October 2016, the Committee held its latest Symposium, in Coventry University Business School to explore and seek to demonstrate the economic impact of Executive Education. The result of these conversations will be published in a research report that will be launched at our next Executive Education Symposium on Wednesday 21 June 2017, which will explore how to develop the leadership skills to be an Executive Education Director.
