Executives and leaders in the community who are preparing for a more
senior leadership role can take advantage of new one-day, open
enrollment leadership courses offered by The University of Tampa’s TECO
Center for Leadership (CFL). Registration is now open, and the first
program is offered on Thursday, Oct. 15.
Dr. Frank Ghannadian,
the director for the CFL and dean of UT’s John H. Sykes College of
Business, explained that these courses were started to meet the demand
in the marketplace for an executive education series.
no one in the Tampa Bay area offers these type of quality leadership
development programs for executives," Ghannadian said.
programs contain both experiential learning and group interaction, and
participants will be able to put theoretical concepts into practice via
case studies and other interactive learning methods.
courses are taught by professors and practitioners with the latest
information on industry trends and cutting-edge theory,” said Mike
Weeks, senior associate director of the CFL. “UT offers an academic
atmosphere not found in corporate training classes, and our classes are
very small and interactive.”

strategic opportunities in the industry and for assessing the
