This five-day program focuses on leading-edge ideas in finance, economics, strategy, CEO mindset, and marketing for business journalists and editors. Designed as a consortium offering, these leading business publications have committed to send two to three participants each:
- The New York Times
- USA Today
- The Wall Street Journal
- Bring journalists up to date on key ideas and decision-making frameworks in the fields of finance, economics, strategy, understanding CEO mindset, and marketing.
- Link these frameworks to how CEOs grapple with global business
issues and to journalist concerns, so as to enable them to craft better
contextualized, more substantive, and more informed stories.
- Build analytical skills to assess financial implications of
business decisions, competitive implications of corporate strategic
choices, and economic implications of policy decisions.
- Immerse participants in a learning experience and networking context in which a small group of high-potential business journalists have the opportunity to interact with, and learn from each other, in a pressure- and deadline-free setting.
