Benchmarking Committee

What We Do

The Benchmarking Committee commissions periodic surveys of member schools. These surveys include metrics, trends and strategic insights into the University-based Executive Education industry that can enable members to improve the quality of their work in the field of non-degree executive education.

Goals and Objectives

For the coming year:

Publish the 2019 UNICON Membership Benchmark Survey (distributing survey August 2019 for publication in fall 2019).

How to Get Involved

The UNICON Benchmarking Committee welcomes as members individuals from member schools who:

Have thoughtful and innovative ideas for the type of benchmarking information that UNICON should gather and share with the membership, including content ideas for “pulse” and other surveys, and suggestions to increase survey participation;

Are willing to contribute their time to support Benchmarking Committee projects and participate in Committee meetings;

Are willing to share stories on how they have used findings provided by the Benchmark Committee, to support analyses and decision-making at their institutions.

“Benchmarking data can be extremely useful for member schools to help them understand some macro trends in the industry, as well as uncover opportunities for their own growth.”

– Marco Serrato (University of Chicago), Eric Bergemann (MIT Sloan), Markus Frank (St Gallen), 2018-2019 UNICON Benchmarking Co-Chairs
