The Ashridge Open Programmes Experience

The Ashridge Open Program Experience

Ashridge Executive Education offers you a unique environment for learning, reflection and change.

Why choose an Ashridge Open Program?

Who you meet on an Open programme

Who you meet

Our faculty are not professors but practitioners: they have all held positions in industry or the public or not-for-profit sectors. They couple hands-on experience with academic rigor. Their teaching methods provide practical, applied knowledge to enhance your performance at work. They all know that their job is to help you make changes and get results.

Programme support on an Open programme

Program support

Concentrate on your own development, supported by a dedicated Program Coordinator, who helps you gain the maximum benefit from your learning experience. Your coordinator will be your point of contact before you arrive, be on hand whilst you are at Ashridge and remains a key figure for post-program support after the residential phase of your learning.
