Stages of organizing a Customized Executive Education Program:

  1. Needs assessment. Representatives of a company contact the NUGSB to define the direction of the educational program and priority needs of the company (define the area, specific topics, special needs for the future training, what experience the faculty should have etc.)
  2. Assemble team. The NUGSB Executive Education team searches for a qualified faculty member or business leader for the program among the faculty members of the Nazarbayev University or outside if needed. This stage includes also the budget building. Since custom programs are custom-tailored, the price is usually higher compared to open-enrollment programs.
  3. Program Design & Budget Building. A preliminary program is sent for approval to the customer, and when it is approved the development of the curriculum and preparation of materials takes place.
  4. Program delivery. At this stage, the program is delivered to the customer. During this stage, the NU GSB team provides participants with full-time support to ensure a seamless and professional learning experience.
