The Accelerated Management Program (AMP) is a unique opportunity for veterans and other transitioning professionals to gain business acumen while learning from and collaborating with world-class faculty as a part of a cohort full of high-achieving, high-potential individuals. Offered in partnership with VETTED.org (a non-profit organization that prepares veterans and military spouses for careers in the corporate sector as well as entrepreneurial ventures), this high-intensity program will provide participants with the business knowledge needed for success.
The Accelerated Management Program combines 5 months (optional) of online distance learning in business fundamentals (Marketing, Finance, Accounting, and Operations) with 2 months (required) of comprehensive residential graduate level business instruction focused on new venture creation, commercialization, innovation and entrepreneurship (Strategy, Business Models, Markets, Financials, and Communications). This highly engaging and interactive program utilizes real-world cases, presentations, simulations, performance assessments, and an 8-week corporate or entrepreneurial capstone to ensure participating participants are well-prepared for the new challenges awaiting them in the private sector. Not only are participants given the business knowledge they need to succeed in the corporate world, but they are also provided world-class career services including resume development, mock interviews, and networking techniques and opportunities. Placement opportunities are also available through a growing number of partner companies, and participants will have the benefit of a lifelong Accelerated Management Program alumni network.
The Accelerated Management Program was developed and piloted by Texas Executive Education and the McCombs School of Business. The story of the VETTED Foundation illustrates the power of veterans and military spouses in the workforce, and shows what a group of highly-motivated teammates can do when they use their business and military expertise to make a greater positive impact. The program, while originally developed with veterans in mind, is open to all qualified applicants.
