High-potential Leadership Development at Bergmann

Approached by a Rochester-based organization with a national footprint to develop strategic management training, a hybrid online/face-to-face program was collaboratively developed. The firm selected several internal high-potential leaders to take non-credit bearing courses that would provide essential skills and knowledge in key areas of management. A customized set of classes in leadership, marketing, strategy, systems, and pricing utilized the organization’s own internal data to help employees embrace and apply key learnings for immediate return.

Service Technology Model at Paychex

Following two successful in-person programs with this firm, we refined the program to offer them a three-module service technology program linking analytics, automation, and customer care, guiding employees through a company-specific culmination project. This 100% online program leverages the technology and platform of our top-ranked online Executive MBA program (four years in the Top 10 by Princeton Review) and provides additional flexibility to include remote employees or those with tight workday schedules.

Developing Internal Talent at Rochester Regional Health

Following an internal search for a Chief Nursing Officer, RRH approached RIT to develop a program to bring a broad array of business skills to potential leaders. A series of six customized credited courses taught on-campus focused on critical thinking for decision makers, operational data analysis, healthcare operations, and leadership.  Almost half of the RRH participants have continued on in the Executive MBA program to complete their degree.
