5 best executive education outcomes

You already know that executive education programs build skills in leadership, strategy and other business areas. But you may be surprised at the other benefits you'll get from a top business school. Here's the extra value you can expect from the best executive programs:

#5: Self-knowledge

You can't be a good leader if you don't understand yourself. Good executive leadership programs include self-assessments and one-on-one coaching sessions to dig deep into your strengths and weaknesses.

#4: Your own leadership voice

You also can't be a good leader by pretending to be someone you're not. The best executive programs help you play to your strengths and develop your own unique style.

#3: Immediate business results

Hearing how other companies found success is always interesting - but knowing how to apply your new knowledge is way more useful. Look for hands-on executive programs - those with lots of practical application and, even better, the chance to work on your own project. 

#2. More friends

Not only more friends, but useful friends and mentors! The best business schools attract executives from around the world - and you form life-long bonds and networks that will help you throughout your career. 

#1: Confidence

All this adds up to more confidence - in your leadership abilities, in your business skills, and in your business decisions. And this in turn will bring long-lasting benefits to your performance and career.
