Step 3: Executive Coaching and Co-Curricular Sessions
Executive Coaching, Speakers and Workshops: Saturdays
A component of the Global EMPA program is the fall semester EXEC-GP 100 Executive Coaching and Co-Curricular Program on Saturdays. This lunchtime series will begin on Saturday, September 8 (from 12:40-2:20pm and includes executive coaching, guest speakers, and workshops on presentation and writing skills). The sessions were created for and are only open to students in the Wagner-UCL joint Global EMPA and the Wagner EMPA for Public Service Leaders program. The sessions provide both structured and open time for students across these two EMPA programs to network and collaborate. Lunch will be served. Later this summer, you will see the sessions, fee and location appear on your schedule in Albert and you'll receive the schedule of coaches, speakers and workshops.
Optional Workshops: Weekdays
Wagner offers brief preparatory workshops, however, please note that they are open to all Wagner students and they are not tailored specifically for Executive students. Most meet in August, prior to the start of classes. These workshops provide tips on a variety of topics, such as time/project management, presentation skills, and library research methods. Students register for these free workshops on Albert just as they would any other course. Once students have registered on Albert, attendance is mandatory. Dates, times and course call numbers may be found on the fall schedule in Albert. More information about workshops can be found here.
The Composing Your Career workshop (NONCR-GP 108) is open to all students, including non-Executive students. Although many Executive students do not opt to enroll in the workshop, to determine if you think it would be beneficial for you, review the framework and an introductory video found on this page.
Optional Professional Writing Module: Weekdays
If you you feel you need more opportunities to brush up on your writing skills, another workshop open to all Wagner students is the non-credit Professional Writing (NONCR-GP 907) module. It meets during the semester. More information is available here. The fee for the module is $175.
