BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Recent reports have highlighted the need for professional development during the COVID-19 crisis, as those in business and other fields react to tectonic changes in how work is done. The business world already had changed rapidly since the start of the Millennium, but the pandemic is accelerating that evolution.
At the same time, many companies have dramatically cut training and coaching programs as a result of the pandemic. For decades, the Indiana University Kelley School of Business has been a champion of continuous learning.
To help Kelley School alumni update and retool, Kelley’s Executive Education program (KSBEE) is offering them a 50 percent discount on any non-credit open enrollment certificate program or course offered online or in-residence.
Courses are designed and taught by the same faculty in the Kelley School’s award-winning degree programs. The programs are available to anyone looking to sharpen their business and management abilities. Alumni can bring along a colleague to the same program and they will also receive the discount.
“The Kelley School of Business Executive Education program is here to help update your skills and your resume with learning opportunities designed to help you through this time of change and make a lasting impact on your career,” said Idalene “Idie” Kesner, dean of the Kelley School and the Frank P. Popoff Chair of Strategic Management.
Hundreds of Kelley alumni already have participated in free webinars offered by KSBEE in partnership with the Kelley Alumni Association. More than 150 self-paced business courses covering a wide range of business topics will be available this fall to Kelley alumni at no cost. Look for an announcement soon.
The Kelley School also is offering a free, live discussion online series on current issues Aug. 10-14 led by faculty in its Department of Business Law and Ethics. Registration is required for the five lunchtime sessions on these topics:
- Increased Ethical Risks Due to COVID-19
- Workplace Diversity Issues
- Marketing to Racial Preferences and Marketing to Vulnerable Customers
- Gender, Equity, Harassment, and Work Environments
- Whistleblowing in the Workplace
