Executive Education Scholarships 

The David Eccles School of Business and Executive Education strive to make professional and executive level development opportunities available to everyone. With the generous support of a like-minded organization, we have established the Daniels Fund Ethics Scholarship.

Our Executive Education classes provide insights from world-renowned research and cutting edge business strategies on a variety of topics, including change management, ethics, public speaking, negotiations, teams, and leadership. It is our hope that our current scholarships will allow new generations of leaders to walk away from our courses feeling inspired, knowledgeable, and confident in their actions.
