Program Focus
Top corporate executives increasingly believe that their companies and their civic leadership must play a more active role in shaping regional workforce in order to compete successfully in the world market. This is especially true for electric and gas utilities with their fixed service areas. Yet the worlds of economic development and workforce development have long been separate. What role do we play?

The Nation's Top Business School
This course will be held at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, the country's top-ranked graduate business school - winning back-to-back number one rankings in both BusinessWeek and The Economist. With a broad understanding of current trends and challenges, the Kellogg faculty provides unique insight into and innovative solutions for today’s complex problems. Presenters not only teach, research, and publish in these areas. They also consult to companies such as Kraft, McDonald’s, and BP. This translates into a consistently outstanding curriculum that is being created specifically for utility economic development professionals and their allies by Donald Haider, Kellogg Professor of Management and Strategy and Tom Ticknor, UEDA Director of Executive Education.

“The program gave me tangible relationship building techniques that I was literally able to put to use within an hour of returning to work.”
