JULY 19, 2017 (Exton, PA)— SCTE•ISBE Leadership Institute programs at Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth and at the Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business achieved high satisfaction ratings and a second straight year of best-ever sellout attendance this spring, the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) and its global arm, the International Society of Broadband Experts (ISBE), announced today.
The SCTE•ISBE Leadership Institute at Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth and the SCTE•ISBE Leadership Institute at Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business generated extremely high satisfaction ratings from the 112 students—ranging from high-potential managers to accomplished senior-level executives—who attended. Both scored well over 4.0 out of a possible 5.0 in surveys, with the Tuck program registering an overall satisfaction rating of 4.9.
Both the SCTE•ISBE-Tuck and SCTE•ISBE-Georgia Tech programs deliver high-value blends of academic enrichment—including enhanced leadership, organizational management, and critical-thinking skills—and first-person insights from established industry leaders. Guest speakers included Pat Esser, president of Cox Communications; Terry Cordova, executive vice president and CTO of Altice USA; and Dan Murphy, senior vice president, engineering and technical operations, for Comcast’s Central Division.
The next SCTE•ISBE-Georgia Tech program will be conducted Monday through Thursday, March 12-15, 2018, in Atlanta. The 2018 SCTE•ISBE-Tuck program will be offered Sunday through Friday, May 6-11 at the Tuck School of Business campus in Hanover, N.H.
