What is a custom program?

A Georgia Tech custom executive education program is a joint venture created in collaboration with your organization. Our programs are tailored to empower your team to solve unique business challenges. We develop a results-based curriculum built around your goals, so you can see immediate impact.

How does a custom program get developed?

Custom programs are designed jointly between the faculty and staff at Georgia Tech and your organizational leaders. While our programs are tailored completely to meet your specific needs, there is a well-defined approach that helps us deliver results.

How long does it take to develop a custom program?

The length of time it takes to develop a custom program will depend upon the needs of your organization. The Georgia Tech team will work closely with your organization to ensure that we thoroughly understand your learning objectives and, together, we will identify a timeframe for designing and delivering the program.

How much does it cost to deliver a custom program?

The investment that your organization makes in a custom program will depend upon a variety of factors, including program length and the level of customization needed. We work with clients at a variety of price points.

Can I earn credits or a certificate through a custom program?

Program participants will earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Depending on the length of the program, participants may also be eligible for an official Georgia Tech certificate. Our team will work with you to determine eligibility.

How many participants can be accommodated in a custom program?

Class sizes vary by program.  We recommend cohorts of 15 – 40, however there are opportunities to host more than one cohort concurrently.  Our on-site executive classrooms will hold comfortably up to 50 participants each.

Where will GT custom executive education classes be held?

Classes may be held at your company location, Georgia Tech’s Huang Executive Education Center, or delivered online.

The state-of-the-art Huang Executive Education Center is conveniently located at Technology Square, 5th and Spring Streets in Atlanta. It offers a fully-staffed, supported learning environment, with comfortable and flexible classrooms, integrated technology, small-group breakout rooms, food service, and social spaces.

We are easily accessible and just fifteen minutes via light rail from the world’s business airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Positioned directly across the street from the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center, the center is a short walk from a variety of restaurants, recreational facilities, and a range of other lodging options.

Who can attend a custom program?

Our faculty and staff are available to advise sponsoring organizations on selection processes and criteria.  We collaborate with executive sponsors and project managers on developing cohorts, who will engage, relate, work well together, and arrive for their programs ready to learn new concepts and embrace new ideas.

Are there minimum educational requirements for the participants?

It is at the discretion of the corporate sponsor to select their participants regardless of educational background. Content may be most easily understood and applied by participants who are managers or technical experts with relevant college degrees and/or workplace experience.

Who teaches in the custom programs?

It is Georgia Tech’s philosophy to place the most progressive thought-leaders and experienced executive educators in classrooms with custom program clients.  Often, these are distinguished Scheller College of Business faculty, or faculty from other colleges at the Georgia Institute of Technology.  Qualified consultants, instructors from other institutions, and subject matter experts from within the sponsoring organization are frequently included.

Can I bring in my own instructor?

Since we view development of custom programs as a collaborative process , we are open to incorporating into program designs instruction by educators, subject matter experts, and consultants with whom our clients have established relationships.
