Custom Programs

Our custom programs are designed to meet the needs and objectives of specific companies. The goal of these programs is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful leaders in their industry. We work with you to define your educational objectives, then find the right faculty — starting with those in the Bauer College's academic departments — to develop and deliver programs that broaden the perspective and strengthen the skills necessary to compete in today's and tomorrow's business markets.

Here is a program developed by Bauer Faculty working closely with Insperity Executives:

Bauer can work with you to develop a program for your organization.

First, we will establish specific learning objectives and identify the levels of the organization leadership that will need to be involved. These leaders will work closely with a Bauer faculty member to identify classes to be developed and faculty to teach those classes.

Second, the faculty responsible for each class will work with the organization’s leadership to develop class content. Class content is reviewed by leadership to ensure that it meets the intended training goals.

Finally, as classes are conducted, feedback is solicited form the participants. This feedback is used in providing follow up instruction and revisions to class content.
