Why Should You Attend this Program?
Group activities support the MIP network
Participants describe MIP's course content as high quality. But they stress even more how much they benefit from idea sharing and networking with their classmates from across the country. Thanks to comments like these, the agenda has been enriched with group activities that support the national MIP and cooperative network.
Projects let you apply learning
As a participant, you will have the chance to apply what you've learned in two projects: 1) a small-group project, and 2) an individual project. You will be able to complete the small group project while in Madison working with select colleagues. The individual project is completed at home and is designed to benefit you and your organization through the application of concepts and tools gained in the classroom. Results of both projects will be shared with the class.
Who Should Participate
New CEOs/general managers, CFOs, COOs, vice presidents, and others in, or aspiring to, a co-op senior leadership role.
