Professor of Management
Professor William Klepper is the academic director of Columbia’s Executive Education program. He’s worked on customer programs for a number of corporations, including AT&T, Chase, DuPont, and General Electric.
The video lectures were excellent. Learning about how to identify personalities in business and how to best work with them and persuade them are invaluable. It was presented in a clear way. I will carry this information with me throughout my career.
Senior Vice President

I loved how simple the content of the program was, and the enormous payoff you get from properly and simply understanding these concepts and how to easily apply them in your workplace. I also particularly liked Professor Klepper and how impactful he is as a lecturer. I really related to him. Also, the multi-sensory mode of education here has really appealed to my way of learning, and being able to (in real-time) apply your learning has meant I’ll retain and apply this.
Senior HR Lead
I liked the flexibility in regards to timing for the lectures, critiques, and assignments the most. With my busy and unpredictable daily schedule it allowed me to work on the course as well as my normal, day-to-day responsibilities, without adding risk to my firm.
