The Don and Cathy Jacobs Executive Center provides high quality Executive, Managerial, Professional and Organizational Development programs that support the outreach initiatives of the University of Kentucky and the Gatton College of Business and Economics.

Executive Education Center Overview

The University of Kentucky's Gatton College of Business and Economics Executive Education Center is dedicated to providing a forum that allows attendees to broaden their knowledge base while providing an opportunity to strengthen their managerial skills.  The Executive Education Center is Kentucky's premier executive education source and provides companies and individuals tremendous learning opportunities.  The Executive Education Center (EEC) draws on the outstanding University of Kentucky distinguished faculty and engages community leaders to provide attendees a cutting-edge and highly engaging learning environment.

The EEC works with organizations to design and develop professional executive education programs that address specific performance or strategic needs. The length of these programs can vary from two days to one week to one year.

The EEC also provides a series of public programs, including certificate programs, that cater to the emerging needs of the community and the evolving economic times.  The value to participants is the cross section of attendees and the very nature of the programs.
