EAGL 2014 Applications are Open
The application process for the second year of the Executive Academy for Growth & Leadership (EAGL) is now open. EAGL is a one-year horticultural business certificate program conducted in partnership with Texas A&M University for nursery and greenhouse growers, culminating in a continuing education Certificate in Applied Horticultural Business Management from Texas A&M University. The program is the product of a multi-year design collaboration between program principals Kip Creel of StandPoint and Dr. Charlie Hall of Texas A&M University. Now in its second year, the EAGL program offers a process for delivering insights and tools to address the contemporary challenges of wholesale nursery and greenhouse production businesses. The current class of 10 participants is actively working through an intense year-long, multi-module curriculum to improve their companies competitive position and profitability. EAGL is practical, not theoretical, and built with highly interactive adult learning principles in mind. Each class has a maximum size of 15 executives and meets four times a year (in person), supplemented with significant webinar, preparation coursework and one-on-one sessions with the faculty. Applications for the 2014 class are now being accepted. Direct competitors are not accepted in the program in the same year.
