Darden Announces Three Executive Courses in Washington, D.C.

Feb 24, 2015 Programs to cover topics in sales, global communications and project management

The University of Virginia Darden Executive Education has announced that it will offer three executive education programs in the Washington, D.C. area.

The short courses cover topics in project management, sales, and global business. Of the three short courses, two are new. Here's a run-down of the new programs:

Strategic Sales Management is a four-day course that's aimed at sales managers and small business owners who want to improve their sales strategies, as well as executives who oversee sales managers. It covers a range of topics involved in developing sales strategies, including how to motivate a sales force and developing customer relationships. It's set to launch in Washington, D.C. on April 20th.

Executive Excellence: Communicating, Engaging and Influencing in a Global Marketplace is a new program taught in partnership with "The Communication Center," which is a communication consulting firm. The program takes place over 2.5 days, and will cover topics in storytelling, interview skills, and message development, among others. It's aimed at managers who aspire to become C-suite executives. It launches on May 6th.

Another new program is Project Management for Executives, a two-day course which is set to launch on May 12th. It's designed for leaders who manage projects but are not technical project managers. Topics that the course will touch on include "portfolio and selection analysis," "stakeholders, risk, failure and recovery," and "planning fallacies and behavioral biases." This program will be delivered in Arlington, Virginia, according to the Darden website.

Darden's main campus is in Charlottesville, Virginia, which is about 120 miles outside of Washington, D.C.
