Bloch Executive Series | Leadership Seminars

Executive education teacher

Bloch Executive Education recognizes the need for organizations to strengthen their leadership talent, as well as, individual professionals to continue their pursuit of personal development. As such, we have developed the Bloch Executive Series of leadership seminars.

These seminars are one-day, in-person, programs offered here at UMKC which focus on current business concepts as well as future trends with emphasis on practical learning and applicable techniques. Participants are given the opportunity to build skills to improve decision-making in a workshop environment where they can test assumptions and realize outcomes with peers. There are no prerequisites for joining seminars.

Individuals can elect to register for one seminar or a series of four or more (at a discounted rate) in order to complete the Leadership Track and earn recognition of completion earning a certificate from Bloch Executive Education.

Organizations can invest in employee leadership development by purchasing bundled packages of seminar seats at discounted rates.
