SCTE Lines Up 40 Attendees For Dartmouth Exec Program


The Society of Cable & Telecommunications Engineers announced it has registered 40 cable technology executives for the inaugural class of the SCTE Leadership Institute with Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business.

The program, priced at $9,970 per attendee, will take place next week, April 26-30, at the college's Hanover, N.H., campus.

The 40 executives -- which organizers had said was the maximum size of the program -- represent a cross-section of the operator and vendor communities, according to SCTE. The association previously said attendees include execs from Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Charter, Bright House Networks, Suddenlink Communications, Liberty Global, Alpha Technologies, Arris, CommScope and SeaChange International.

The program will include such courses as "Developing a Strategic Mindset: Laying the Foundation," "Why Smart Executives Fail, and What You Can Learn From Their Mistakes," and "Using Financial Statements to Create Value."

Guest speakers are to include: Time Warner Cable chairman and CEO Glenn Britt, who's an alumnus of Dartmouth and Tuck; TWC chief technology officer Mike LaJoie; Rich Bilotti, head of media, technology and telecommunication research at P. Schoenfeld Asset Management; and Bruce Leichtman, president and Principal Analyst of Leichtman Research Group.

"As we approach the start of classes, it's truly gratifying to see the way everyone involved has embraced this program," SCTE president and CEO Mark Dzuban said in a statement. "From the energy that Tuck faculty and MSO senior executives have put into the curriculum to the response from the operator and vendor communities, we've seen real enthusiasm for this program as a way to drive new levels of learning and leadership in the industry."
