The Cornell Dairy Executive Program is now accepting applications for its latest class, to begin in December 2014. This unique educational opportunity, organized by the PRO-DAIRY Program at Cornell University, is a professional educational program in leadership and management principles for progressive dairy executives and agriservice personnel, focused on increasing their ability to run a successful dairy business and to enhance their understanding of the fast-changing dairy industry. By coming to this program, participants will continue to develop the necessary leadership and business management skills to lead their dairy business into the future.
Timely topics in dairy business management are presented by a team of national experts from within and outside of the field of agriculture through three multi-day sessions over a 12-month period. Participants attending the program can expect to develop 1- and 5-year strategic business plans through a comprehensive self-evaluation of their business, while building a network of dairy executives and business relationships. All sessions take place at The Statler Hotel on the Cornell University campus, where a typical day includes presentations, individual study, small group discussions and roundtable discussions with faculty.
