Duke CE is headquartered in Durham, North Carolina, alongside Duke University. We also have offices in Washington, DC and Boston, MA.

Duke Corporate Education’s Americas practice serves clients across a diverse set of industries: healthcare, insurance, pharmaceuticals, banking, aerospace, transportation, oil and gas, mining, utilities, telecom, high tech, media, government and not-for-profit organizations.

While our clients in the Americas primarily maintain headquarters in the US and Canada, they are global organizations with challenges as diverse as the industries they represent, the geographic regions in which they operate, and the communities they impact.

Since our establishment in 2000 as a carve out from the executive education practice of Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, we have employed a unique business model integrating our academic roots and corporate experience.

The proximity of our Durham, NC office (our global and Americas headquarters) to Duke University enables us to engage with world leading academic experts, thought leaders and practitioners. This stretches our thinking and continually shapes our approach to solving our clients’ challenges, ensuring that we prepare leaders to not only navigate today’s context but to equip them for future.
