Stayer Center

Game-changer. Life-changing. Network-building. These are a few of the many ways that the professional development programs offered through the Stayer Center for Executive Education are described by participants.

As a staff member, faculty member or spouse within the University of Notre Dame family, you have access to a rich portfolio of programs at a 20 percent discounted enrollment rate.

Programs range from the two-day, Supervisory Development course, to programs in leadership, business analytics and digital marketing, to a week-long experience for senior executives. The team at the Stayer Center also delivers the Executive MBA program (South Bend and Chicago), and the Chicago weekend programs — M.S. in Business Analytics and M.S. in Finance.

Ric Mauch, manager of construction network services in the Office of Information Technologies (OIT), says, “The Certificate in Executive Management program changed the way I think, reflect, act and plan. The course was a game-changer for me, and I am forever grateful. I am forever referring to class discussions of real-world situations.”

He adds, “I am a proud graduate of the program, and encourage any leaders to enroll their teammates or their future leaders in this course. Immersing in the Notre Dame experience, its culture, the cross-section of people in the classroom, and the discussions, all add to the positive impact.”
