Celebrating 20 years of client excellence

July 1, 2020 marks 20 years of client excellence for Duke Corporate Education (Duke CE). Since our founding in 2000, pushing boundaries has always been part of our DNA. As we look ahead to the future amid increased volatility, we know that leadership development is more important than ever and can be the force multiplier for positive change in organizations and the world. We’re here to help you shape the future. In response to the global crisis, we have been innovating and launching a timely set of virtual offerings to help your leaders get ready for what’s next.

Duke CE was founded to focus specifically on leadership development in context.. The vision was to create an organization to focus solely on serving clients by delivering measurable business outcomes through problem-centered executive education. Learn more about our story.

Meet Our Clients

Clients are at the heart of everything we do and drive us consistently toward greater impact and excellence. Since 2000, we have been fortunate to work with some of the world’s most influential companies, delivering more than 10,000 programs in over 80 countries worldwide. We start with our clients’ unique challenges and co-create learning experiences that catalyze change.

“Disruptive in the most positive, uncomfortable and immersive manner. Many courses fail to deliver on relevance, and the experience feels tick-box or not worth the time. Duke CE’s “think big, start small” mantra is powerful, focusing on the vision that will drive you forward and starting small so that you are not overwhelmed and you are able to make progress immediately.”
