AMP+ for Working Professionals

The AMP program is now fortified for business professionals. AMP+ offers additional instruction in small workshop settings exclusively for working professionals.

We’ve added two bookend sessions, one at the beginning of the program and one at the end, for professionals only.

In the pre-session on the Sunday prior to the first class, business professionals will meet with a faculty member to discuss the objectives of the program and help participants develop their own personal goals and expectations. On the second Thursday of class, groups will again gather to discuss an implementation plan to ensure learning transfers to the workplace.

Also new and an integral part of AMP+  are three special working professional-only sessions in the afternoons; this time is earmarked for deeper discussion. The content of the workshops may vary from year to year, and are held from 2:30-4:30 p.m. on three of the program days.

That’s five additional sessions at no additional cost. Also, networking dinners will be held each Monday evening for business professionals.
