Through a partnership formed between Commerce Lexington Inc. and the University of Kentucky’s Gatton College of Business & Economics, a scholarship in the amount of $10,000 will be available to a Commerce Lexington Inc. member to help defray the cost of the UK-UofL Executive MBA, beginning in August 2017.
The goal is to provide an opportunity for a C-level executive or advancing corporate leader to demonstrate their desire to improve the economic environment of Central Kentucky, while furthering their own personal development.
The University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville are partners in a first-rate Executive MBA that gives participants hands-on skills and real-world knowledge applicable to a variety of challenging work situations, while supporting personal and career growth, as well as leadership development.
The goal is to help ‘up-and-coming’ business professionals develop the confidence and knowledge they need to take the next step in advancing as a leader in their field. The program was recently ranked 28th in the world by CEO Magazine – a ranking that reflects the focus on excellence in areas including faculty talent, student experience, and inclusivity in the program.
For many years, Commerce Lexington Inc. has recognized the importance of nurturing young leaders and providing leadership development opportunities to individuals in our community and region through its Leadership Lexington and Leadership Central Kentucky programs.
Between the two programs, more than 1,600 people have become more knowledgeable about the region in which they live, while actively contributing to efforts to enhance the Bluegrass through a variety of class projects.
