Why Should I Attend?

Comments from participants on their program evaluations include:


"Excellent course.  The value of self-awareness and understanding others, as well as knowledge about problem solving and conflict resolution are tools I will use immediately."

"Absolutely fantastic!  Look forward to working with all of you more.  Thank you for recognizing this need and creating this program."

"This was exactly the course I was looking for."

"Pete (DeLisle) is truly a wonderful teacher and, with his experience, combined real-world stories with theory.  This made his teaching very effective.  He was very engaging and easily kept my attention (which is sometimes tough!)"


Additional perspectives on the value of participating in this program:

As you progress over time as a rising engineering professional, I know of no growth propellant as significant as leadership. Mastering the art and science of leadership will extend oneself from a single Force for Good into a Force Multiplier for the Extraordinary.  

Notre Dame is uniquely positioned to help you successfully make this transition from individual contributor to engineering leader by offering this excellent executive education program collaboratively developed by its highly acclaimed Colleges of Business and Engineering.

All engineers will be called at some point in their career to influence, guide and impact professional effectiveness. Becoming a person of influence is a process that engages the individual in critical self-reflection, personal growth and skill development. This program accomplishes all of these objectives.

Building the interpersonal and leadership capabilities of our students is critical to their success.  As Dean of the College of Engineering, I know that developing leadership in our current students is critical, but not sufficient.  Our alumni include many talented engineers who are getting ready to assume higher levels of responsibility.  They have proven themselves as creative and talented contributors.  I believe that assisting engineers successfully transition into higher levels of responsibility and leadership is something that our College of Engineering must also do.
