Executive Education

Taught by a team of faculty members from HBS, HGSE, and HKS within Harvard University, PELP Executive Education programs feature a wide range of leadership cases and materials curated especially for K-12 system leaders in partner organizations. Our two main institutes focus on system level leadership at the superintendent level as well as a customized program for governance in large urban districts developed in partnership with the Council of the Great City Schools.
