The Executive Leadership Institute (ELI), offered in partnership with the University of Michigan School of Social Work and Ross School of Business, equips senior-level managers and executives with the knowledge and skills to oversee day-to-day operations, and also prepare for the future and greater systems change. Transactional meets transformational for this influential experience.

ELI assembles a wide variety of faculty from the nonprofit and for-profit sectors, as well as academia. The curriculum will not only challenge, but offers a rare opportunity to focus on excellence, impact and systems change.

ELI features 64 hours of content delivered over two years during two concentrated sessions. The second year of the program culminates in the presentation of projects completed between the first and second years. The presentations are given before the assembly of participants and faculty.
