CCU offers executive development training opportunities

February 28, 2017

The E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration at Coastal Carolina University has released the 2017 training calendar for its Executive Development program. The program, designed to promote personal and professional development and to empower participants with effective management strategies, offers advanced training for leaders responsible for managing organizational goals. Upcoming cutting-edge training sessions are Innovation Engineering®, the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) and the Skills to Lead Program. All sessions will take place at the main CCU campus.

The Innovation Engineering® program, offered July 24-26, transforms innovation from a random gamble to a reliable system for profitable growth by creating a culture of never-ending innovation that delivers increased innovation speed (up to six times) and decreased risk (up to 80 percent). Innovation Engineering® was developed by the Eureka! Ranch research and development team. The Eureka! Ranch is an innovation systems company that teaches courses, leads projects, and develops tools that help ignite innovation within people and organizations.

The cost is $3,000, which includes all materials, online readings, lunch and snacks. Participants who complete the full program receive a blue belt in innovation engineering from Eureka! Ranch. For more information, visit

This program is geared toward entry-level project practitioners, active project managers, and practitioners in health care, product development or anyone who is interested in learning the fundamentals and terminology of project management for the purpose of improving job performance.

The training is from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. and includes a one-hour lunch break. The cost for each individual is $1,250. The price for current CCU students is $750.
