NEW YORK, Oct. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Kids aren't the only ones heading back to school this autumn. Executives around the world are gravitating towards business-school classrooms—both in person and online—to hone their skills in areas from emerging technologies to emotional intelligence.
To aid executives' search for the ideal course, The Economist Group has launched the Executive Education Navigator. The online directory helps busy professionals sort through thousands of executive-education offerings. You can think of the platform as the Yelp or Expedia of professional development.
The site allows users to search for available courses by applying a variety of parameters (such as date, cost, location and course topic) and to compare and contrast executive-education programmes.
"Who has time to visit every single business school's website to find and compare thousands of executive-education programmes? Before we launched the Executive Education Navigator, that's what people had to do," said Adam Ingberman, VP of Product Development for The Economist Careers Network. "Now, all you have to do is type the topic you want to learn about, hit enter and filter results by anything from location to price to course length. What used to take days to achieve now takes seconds."
Since the platform's launch in July, hundreds of thousands of professionals have used the search site, which helps users search and filter through more than 3,000 courses.
