CAMDEN — The Rutgers School of Business–Camden’s executive education program has been awarded the gold 2013 Learning in Practice Excellence in Academic Partnerships Award from Chief Learning Officer magazine, a leading business publication.
Rutgers–Camden was recognized for its partnership with Graybar Electric Co., Inc. The two sides work together to develop and prepare leaders to take on roles of increasing responsibility.
“This award is a powerful recognition of the creative work that Rutgers University has been doing with our corporate partner Graybar,” says Ray Compari, associate dean and director of executive education at the Rutgers School of Business–Camden. “While our collective learning and development teams work very hard to refine and deliver the Rutgers-Graybar Supply Chain Certificate Program for Graybar leaders, receiving national recognition is immensely rewarding. Together, Graybar and Rutgers are proud to be developing Graybar leaders to take on roles of increasing responsibility and for future business success.”
Compari adds, “We at Rutgers will continue to strive to design and develop, with our client partners, best-in-class training programs that provide superior return on investment and value.”
Rutgers–Camden was recognized at the 2013 Chief Learning Officer Symposium in Palm Springs, Calif. The event attracted 300 top corporate learning executives from around the world.
“The Rutgers-Graybar Supply Chain Management program gives us an effective way to identify leaders who demonstrate our core values and equip them to succeed in an increasingly complex and dynamic business environment,” says Kathy Mazzarella, chairman, president, and CEO of Graybar. “By developing leaders from within the company, we can sustain Graybar’s long track record of success and strengthen our employee ownership culture for future generations.”
