Featuring in-depth core sessions and topical electives, the Digital Transformation for CxOs Program and the Global CxO Program explore the leadership skills needed for today’s senior executives and how they can leverage the latest technologies and foster cutting-edge innovation to drive business growth.
The Aresty Institute of Executive Education at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania has partnered with Emeritus, the global leader in making high-quality upskilling education accessible and affordable, to launch two new programs for senior executives. Both programs are 9- to 12-month learning journeys that feature a faculty of esteemed thought leaders, industry guest speakers, immersive online modules, and a choice of electives. Participants will also explore real-world case studies and work on exercises designed to apply their program insights in their roles and organizations. Each program concludes with a two-day on-campus networking and graduation event.
The Digital Transformation for CxOs Program
According to a recent report, 89 percent of companies say that digital transformation is currently a priority. For it to succeed, leadership must extend beyond the technology function to ensure that all verticals throughout the organization are aligned to embrace new initiatives. The Wharton Executive Education Digital Transformation for CxOs Program is specifically designed to address this shift.
“Digital transformation is increasingly critical for the success of any organization, and harnessing its potential goes far beyond the chief technology officer’s purview. CxOs across functions are now expected to be involved in leveraging emerging technologies to generate new value propositions while influencing their teams and internal stakeholders to embrace new initiatives. We at Wharton Executive Education are delighted to offer this comprehensive program to help C-suite leaders forge growth-led digital strategies and build innovative digital solutions to sustain transformation,” says Rahul Kapoor, academic director of the Digital Transformation for CxOs Program; David W. Hauck Professor; and professor of management at the Wharton School.
“As a key member of the C-suite, those who choose to invest in their development can stay ahead of digital disruptions and ensure that their organization remains competitive. We at Emeritus are excited to collaborate with Wharton Executive Education in helping senior professionals build a perspective on the future,” says Lisa Rohrer, president of university partnerships at Emeritus.
The Digital Transformation for CxOs Program is priced at US$20,000, which includes teaching fees, all academic material, and access to online coursework. The program starts on June 21, 2022, and is open for enrollment now through Emeritus.

The Global CxO Program
According to McKinsey & Co., 83 percent of global leaders feel unprepared for their new roles. Today’s globally connected world demands new leadership skills with an unconventional approach to business. Expanded global C-suite responsibilities require an increased focus on the customer experience and an eye for disruption and innovation in any function. The Wharton Executive Education Global CxO Program is specifically designed to cater to this growing need.
“Organizations across the world are undergoing massive changes in the way they function and conduct business. This paradigm shift has necessitated the need for CxOs who can effectively grasp the changing dynamics of the business landscape and strategize for success. The Global CxO Program from Wharton Executive Education has been designed to help senior executives sharpen their skills to lead in the evolving business environment,” says Emilie R. Feldman, academic director for the Global CxO Program and professor of management at the Wharton School.
“This program will help global C-suite executives effectively lead strategy in their organizations and drive their functions toward success. We at Emeritus are excited to collaborate with Wharton Executive Education in helping senior leaders accelerate their impact,” says Lisa Rohrer, president of university partnerships at Emeritus.
The Global CxO Program is priced at US$20,000, including teaching fees, all academic material, and access to online coursework.
