In 2017, Duke Corporate Education (Duke CE) ranks in the top three custom executive education providers globally, and is the #1 provider based in North America. This is the 17th consecutive year that Duke CE has received top honors, building on our record of consistent excellence.

“It is always rewarding to achieve a top ranking by the Financial Times as the rankings are based on surveys of executives in client organizations. As such, we owe this honor to our clients,” said CEO Michael Chavez. “We work with Global 1000 clients around the world. All of them are working hard on solving complex and mission-critical business challenges and have determined that their corresponding leadership challenges are also mission-critical. Working closely with our clients on their most pressing issues has enabled us to stay sharp and innovate faster.”

Building more agile leaders who can lead faster, adaptable organizations is one of the most significant strategic challenges facing businesses today. Duke CE designs and delivers customized leadership development solutions to meet this challenge and, through its expertise in learning-enabled change and design, helps leaders get ready for what’s next.

“We are so grateful to our global network of talented educators,” Chavez said. “In a world where context and experiences are as important as content, the diversity, uniqueness and global nature of the network enables us to shape the right solutions for clients wherever in the world they are.”
