With your chosen team of HR business partners and COE/specialists (intact, matrix or project-based), you'll partner with Cornell faculty to develop value-added solutions for one of your company's critical business challenges.
During the program, our faculty will provide research, case studies and tools to help participants understand the relationship between business imperatives and talent investments.
