Certified CEO program launch

SYDNEY (July 7, 2016): Today, The CEO Institute and UNE Partnerships, the not-for-profit education and training company of the University of New England, launched the Certified CEO Program. As the only professional recognition program for CEOs, the Program is a unique offering for current and aspiring business leaders. Delivered online, it's also available globally.

This year The CEO Institute celebrates 25 years of working with and mentoring Australian executives. With the depth of insight developed by guiding thousands of C-suite executives in their professional growth, the Institute commissioned UNE Partnerships to develop a contemporary, globally relevant course designed for business leaders here and overseas.

The CEO Institute is the world’s first global certification body for CEOs and senior managers. The Certified CEO designation is a mark of distinction and respect, setting the new gold standard in Global Leadership. Graduates of the Certified CEO program with five years' experience or more in a CEO or equivalent role, will be awarded the title Certified CEO.

Chairman of The CEO Institute Kenneth Gunn said UNE Partnerships was the ideal collaborator to develop and deliver the Certified CEO Program.

"UNE Partnerships is able to draw directly on the experience and expertise of Australia's leading online educator the University of New England. The University has been a pioneer of distance education for almost 70 years, and the Business School has the globally focused mind set we needed," said Mr Gunn.

The content is based on world-class best practice and the delivery is very flexible, an imperative for executives with busy lives. The delivery of the course:

  • Is entirely online
  • Has an all year round intake
  • Is available to overseas candidates

"The program also contributes up to four units of credit to the University of New England's MBA course, for those interested in pursuing a full Masters qualification," said Mr Gunn.

Tim Catterall, CEO of UNE Partnerships said that to meet the requirements of The CEO Institute, "UNE Partnerships has collaborated with the University of New England to curate content from a variety of sources distilling it into a relevant, contextualised, and accessible online training program for this specific cohort."

"This opportunity presents an exciting platform for us to showcase our capabilities in digital education with academic rigour across geographies. The program will continually evolve to ensure its relevance to education of executives to meet the challenges of career progression in a dynamic international business market," said Mr Catterall.

UNE Partnerships, the Education and Training Company of the University of New England, has been at the forefront of the customised design, development and delivery of distance education since 1986. The University of New England has been delivering high quality education for over 60 years, and is the only online university to be awarded the maximum 5 stars for student satisfaction, every year for the last 10 years.*
