The IT Leaders Program (ITLP) is a multi-university, cross-campus program built around MOR Associates' core leadership curriculum and tuned to the needs of senior leaders. It is designed for individuals who will play increasingly important management and leadership roles. Rather than learning through case studies based on past events, participants work on real problems they are facing.

ITLP Overview

The IT Leaders Program (ITLP) is for IT community members who have management aspirations and whose managers believe they have the skills to be a future manager at Cornell. It is also for those already in positions of leadership who wish to improve their skills. Participation entails a 2-year commitment (year one is the program and year two is mentoring the next year's participants.) Cornell class members meet off-site at other Ivy Plus institutions.

Time commitment: 10-month program (January-September/October) with four sessions. Each session is 3 full days. Three sessions require travel days. Work is assigned to complete between sessions.

Costs: $6,500 tuition plus travel expenses. All costs are paid by your Cornell department, unit, or college.

Travel: Three of the four sessions require travel to other participating universities (past examples are Stanford, Columbia, Berkeley, etc.). Typically, participants require a 3- or 4-night stay, depending on the university location. One session is hosted by Cornell.

Objectives:

  • Enhance the professional and personal development of individuals who will play increasingly important management and leadership roles within their organizations.
  • Broaden each participant’s understanding of the strategic issues facing higher education and how each institution is shaping its choices.
  • Strengthen the relationships within and across the participating universities in order to foster the collaboration needed to leverage resources when working on common interests.

Themes:

  • Differentiating leadership from management
  • Leading and managing people and change
  • Delivering service and results
  • Leading and learning in fast forward
