The University of the Aftermarket at Northwood University has officially opened registration for its next Leadership 2.0 class, which begins Aug. 6-11, 2017, at the university’s campus in Midland, Mich. The second session will be held March 11-16, 2018. Participants must attend both sessions.
The University of the Aftermarket says Leadership 2.0 is a post-graduate style leadership and business skills education program designed to promote the development of the next generation of aftermarket leaders. In addition to the two week-long classroom segments, which feature lectures, roundtable discussions, networking sessions, and team research and problem-solving activities, participants also work off-site to develop and present team research projects covering key industry challenges. Featured presenters include leading aftermarket executives and faculty from Northwood University’s DeVos Graduate School of Management.
Class size is limited so those interested are encouraged to register early as the class is a sell-out every year, the school says.
Leadership 2.0 is designed for early-to-mid-career, management-track, high-potential aftermarket professionals in all market segments. Program participants include a mix of aftermarket professionals from manufacturing, retail/wholesale stores, program distribution, warehouses, service dealers, associations and other industry segments allied to the auto care industry. This collaborative mix of industry levels is unique in the industry and adds to the educational experience, the University says.
The cost of the two-week program is $6,250 and includes tuition, class materials and meals. More information and registration details are available by listing the Course Calendar on the University’s website, or by calling 800-551-2882.
The University says participants receive 7.0 CEUs toward their Automotive Aftermarket Professional (AAP) or Master Automotive Aftermarket Professional (MAAP) designations.
