Meet the Instructors
The Center for Executive Education at West Virginia University draws on instructors from both academia and professional arenas. Instructors are selected to match the needs of your organization to ensure that the most effective partnership is developed.
In the Center for Executive Education, you will be interacting with faculty and practitioners who clearly understand the business challenges you face. Our innovative instructors emphasize practical application rather than theory. They understand your need to return to the organization armed with information and tools that you can apply immediately to address your business challenge.
Active in research and involved in consultation with businesses internationally, our consultants remain current in their field and bring a global perspective to each experience.
