BATON ROUGE – Last week, LSU Executive Education held the first session of its Rising Stars Program. This three-day program is designed to groom high potential employees for professional growth. Members of the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business faculty and other experienced practitioners served, and will continue to serve, as instructors for the program.


According to LSU Executive Education Director Robin Kistler, the program is intended for various individuals, including those on the path to becoming managers, those recently transitioning into a managerial role or individuals identified as part of an organizational succession plan.


“This program was designed to significantly increase the confidence and competency levels of an organization’s future leaders,” said Kistler, director of LSU Executive Education. “With our workforce changing drastically, it is extremely important to prepare young professionals to take on greater levels of responsibility at a much earlier age than traditionally expected.”


Individuals or groups wanting to attend can register for any of the following upcoming sessions:


The standard fee to attend the multi-day workshops is $1,495 per attendee, and the discounted fee for nonprofit, government and groups of three or more is $1,445 per attendee. Fees include lunches, break refreshments and program course materials. Fees are subject to change.
