Program Dates: May 26 – June 18, 2015
Location: Carnegie Bosch Institute, Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA (USA)
Limited Enrollment: To ensure a productive personal and interactive atmosphere, we limit enrollment to 36 participants. This group size guarantees a high return on your investment. Due to the limited group size, we recommend registration as early as possible. This program may fill up before the deadline.
Application Deadline: April 9, 2015
Language Proficiency: All sessions are conducted in English.
Application Process: Participant admission is based on an application process that ensures the best possible peer group parity. Applicants submit their application and information online, followed by a recommendation letter from their supervisor. This letter serves to assess expectations for the applicant’s professional and personal development, as well as the impact on the business following the program. Accepted participants will be notified thereafter. All correspondence related to the application process is treated confidentially.
Accommodations: Participants live in self-contained apartment suites (fully furnished bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bath) that are a 15-minute walk to Carnegie Bosch Institute. Upon prior arrangement, suites may also accommodate visiting family members.
Enrollment Fee: The participant program fee of $35,900 for 2014 (TBD for 2015) covers tuition, lodging, course materials, campus athletic facilities, daily shuttle, transportation for organized social events, and most meals. Companies sending three or more participants, organizations with fewer than 500 employees, non-profits, and the government sector receive a 10% discount.
Cancellation Policy: With written notice of cancellation received 45 days in advance of the program start date, a full refund minus a US $500 administrative fee will be provided. With less than 45 days notice, a refund of 50% will be provided. Feasible substitutions may be an option at the discretion of Carnegie Bosch Institute.
Program Preparation: As a way of effectively preparing for the program, creating common ground among participants, and laying the groundwork for spirited discussion, some pre-readings are required. Program participants are also required to collect confidential 360 degree feedback from their supervisors, peers, and colleagues via a secure online portal. Participants are encouraged to discuss their goals and expectations for program participation, both before and after the program, with their supervisors and their organization’s leadership team.
