The National Grocers Association (N.G.A.) is partnering with the University of Southern California (USC) Marshall School of Business and Unilever to expand its executive leadership development program.
The N.G.A. Executive Leadership Development Program currently is offered at Cornell University through funding provided by PepsiCo Inc. The expansion will now include two programs offered at two institutions, Cornell and USC, allowing N.G.A. to increase annual participation from 36 executives to more than 50. Unilever will provide funding to support the new USC program.
More than 250 N.G.A. member executives representing senior leadership from more than 100 independent retailers and wholesalers have graduated from the Cornell program since its inception.
The N.G.A. Executive Leadership Development Program will be held June 3-7 at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., and June 10-14 at USC in Los Angeles, Calif.
