Executive Education at Mays

The Center for Executive Development at Mays Business School continues to launch programs that are building leaders and garnering national attention.

Conference on Management and Executive Development (CMED) recognized custom Weatherford program

The Center for Executive Development (CED) at Mays Business School teamed up with Weatherford’s Talent Development office to create a program that identifies and develops strategic leaders, fosters engagement and commitment to moving Weatherford forward, and empowers leaders to make optimal decisions rooted in Weatherford Core Values & Leadership Competencies. In 2018, a total of 94 leaders and high potential employees completed the Weatherford Leadership Development Program with more programming scheduled for 2019.

Business Essentials Refines Professional’s Acumen

The Conference on Management and Executive Development (CMED) also recognized CED’s Executive Certificate in Business Essentials as “Best New Program.” The certificate was developed for busy professionals responsible for business decisions who hope to refine their business acumen. A range of business topics are covered, including numerous management/leadership sessions, financial acumen, marketing, supply chain, etc. With its unique structure of one two-day session per month over a course of six months, this program accomplishes the goals of participants with limited interruption to their professional lives.

New family-like partnership with Concho Resources

Concho Resources, an independent exploration and production company based in Midland, Texas, is one of the CED’s newest clients. Typical classes contain 20 people from all parts of the company. “This is a great partnership,” said Brandi Plunkett, executive director of the CED. “They’re like family. Our culture and values match.”

Concho employees are selected by top company management to participate in one of three tiered programs, all of which are held at Mays Business School. At all program levels, participants work on a project and present their solutions to Concho executives. “They are solving real problems for their company, and this technique build rapport and a network so they can work together better,” Plunkett said.
