Arlington, VA – October 3, 2019 – TwentyEighty Strategy Execution Inc., the global authority in project leadership training, announces the extension of its partnership with Duke Corporate Education to deliver end-to-end certificate programs for project leaders. Building on the success of the Adaptive Strategic Execution Program (ASEP) — a collaboration between the two groups launched in May of 2017— these certificate programs are designed to build critical skills at every level of project execution.

Through these programs, learners can develop valuable skills, gain professional recognition, increase earning potential, and earn certificates from a world-renowned university. By combining top-notch academic rigor, real-world application, and a modern and practical delivery method, these programs help learners differentiate themselves in a competitive market. Certificates of completion for each program are awarded in partnership between Duke University’s Office of Continuing Studies and Duke Corporate Education.

“Organizations need to invest in skills that not only bring together the best of academia and practical application of learning, but also enable their people to adapt to the constantly changing business environment,” Strategy Execution CEO Christoffer Ellehuus said. “Strengthening our partnership with Duke Corporate Education gives our clients and learners the confidence and tools they need to be successful in today’s world.”

Through Strategy Execution memberships, certificates in project, program, and contract management; IT project management; federal project and program management (FAC-P/PM); Lean and Agile; and business analysis can be earned.

Duke Corporate Education has been ranked among The Financial Times’ top three university programs for custom executive education for the last 19 years.

“It is vital that we prepare our workforce with valuable skills they need in today’s fast-changing world. Few management domains have experienced such a dramatic need for upskilling as project management,” Duke Corporate Education CEO Michael Chavez said. “We are excited to extend our partnership with Strategy Execution to bring a modern approach to learning, which helps project leaders become more adaptable, gain and retain knowledge, and acquire the skills they need to thrive.”
