Customized Programs

The Center for Professional Studies has the expertise to help you meet the needs and challenges of your unique organization.

Drawing on Drake University College of Business and Public Administration faculty expertise, we collaborate with you the client to design and deliver a mission-focused, coordinated and academically sound program of study.

A typical program is designed around a group-learning format for up to 30 professionals.  The "class" meets in an all-day format onsite at the client's facility or on the Drake campus in our adult learning classroom on a schedule designed to meet the needs of the client.  Parking, food and other amenities are provided.  Length of programs can vary between one or two consecutive days up to 25 or more days unfolding over a period of months.  Many programs run between 5 and 15 days occurring over a 2-3 month period.  In some cases a customized program can be designed to provide a jumpstart into a College of Business and Public Administration graduate degree such as the MBA or MPA degree programs.

Examples of tailored subject areas customized for the client include:

  • Business Leadership Certificate
  • Nonprofit Leadership and Administration
  • Public Sector Management
  • Health Leadership and Management
  • Marketing
  • Strategic Planning
  • International Business
  • Grant Writing and Management
  • Communication
  • Conflict Management and Negotiation

 

We are pleased to discuss with you the learning needs of your organization.
