2021 Volume 12 Issue 2 Pages 105-110


This paper reviews the challenges that executive education programs in business schools faced in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the general nature of their responses to it. To better understand the internal dynamics of such responses, a clinical case study of one business school’s executive education program’s successful response to the pandemic is reported and analyzed. Reasons for its success are delineated, and unforeseen pedagogical innovations derived from the experience are discussed. The paper concludes with a discussion of the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for the future design of executive education curriculum.
