Jack Welch Management Institute and Udemy Form Partnership

November 26, 2012 – The Jack Welch Management Institute at Strayer University and Udemy, an online education marketplace, have formed a strategic partnership to offer online leadership development solutions available through a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) provider. The Jack Welch Management Institute applies the celebrated management practices of Fortune magazine’s “Manager of the Century,” and combines real-world instruction with immediate, on-the-job applicability. The Institute currently offers executive MBA and executive certificate programs that fit the needs of new and experienced managers alike. Through extensive work with over 150 corporations, the Jack Welch Management Institute and Strayer University have identified what they believe is an unmet business need for high-quality, practical management training. Corporations are increasingly looking for shorter-form courses that provide specific, applicable and timely education to a large pool of employees as an effective way of further educating their teams. “We are always looking for innovative ways to bring technology enhancements to our offerings and our clients have told us that too many management training and development programs don’t deliver on their promise because the content is too rigid and theoretical,” said Dean Sippel, general manager of the Jack Welch Management Institute. “The courses that we will provide, offer ultimate flexibility, a personalized learning experience, and winning skills that can be used on the job, right away.”
