Research Committee

What We Do

Cutting-edge research is one of UNICON’s cornerstone activities, guided and coordinated by the Research Committee. UNICON-sponsored research seeks to deepen the understanding of the role of executive education, while generating practical knowledge for members and other practitioners.

Members benefit from UNICON research, as it can expand their knowledge of the field, while keeping them informed of recent developments.

Past research has covered topics such as innovation, blended learning, mobile technologies and leveraging alumni relationships. To see the entire archive of UNICON-sponsored research, visit the Content Hub:

Open Call for Research Proposals

Each year, the Research Committee actively welcomes proposals and provides grants for original research focused on university-based executive education.

If you, or a faculty member at your university, has an idea for a project, we invite you to submit a brief description to the Research Committee. Please send it using the form below. Your idea will be carefully evaluated by the committee. Feedback and further guidance will be provided as soon as possible.
