A strong new partner for OpusVi
Cementing our influence in Arizona, OpusVi is thrilled to announce our partnership with Eller Executive Education, the non-degree leadership development arm of the University of Arizona's Eller College of Management. Eller is our 13th partner to be signed, and their caliber is a proud match to the other partners in OpusVi’s portfolio: The University of Arizona is recognized as a global leader in research and a member of the Association of American Universities.
The Eller College of Management is internationally recognized for pioneering research — demonstrated by being the home of the world’s only A.I. lab or center within a business school — offering an innovative curriculum, working with distinguished faculty, their social responsibility, and their excellence in management information systems and entrepreneurship.
Eller Executive Education is one of the leading global providers of delivering organizational development solutions to companies around the world, earning a No. 5 ranking in the U.S. and No. 15 ranking globally — ahead of Wharton, CCL, UCLA, and several other prestigious institutions — for Customized Executive Education in the Financial Times Executive Education Ranking 2019. As a trusted resource for developing talent at all levels, Eller Executive Education helps organizations achieve a future-forward mindset, lead in digital transformation, and create strong decision-making processes that drive objectivity and navigate through turbulence and complexity. They have delivered programs in over 93 global locations.
The partnership is a great fit in terms of mission and regional presence
“OpusVi and Eller Executive Education share the mindset that learning should be action-oriented, immediately applicable, and measurable by impact, so the partnership is a natural fit,” says Kurt Hayes, Chief Learning Experience Officer at OpusVi.
OpusVi’s CEO Andrew Malley adds that “The partnership is of strategic importance to OpusVi, as our parent company CommonSpirit Health (formerly Dignity Health) has a large presence in Arizona. This will help us to achieve an impact on healthcare workforce development quickly — which ultimately means that we get to improve patient outcomes faster.”
Five joint programs are currently in development
OpusVi and Eller Executive Education plan to offer a portfolio of educational opportunities that addresses a range of topics impacting the healthcare field, such as rural healthcare management, negotiating and decision-making, women in business leadership, and executive assistant development. A Healthcare Mini-MBA and a Certificate for Women in Business Leadership are scheduled to be released in October 2020, and Certificates in Executive Assistant Development, Rural Healthcare Management, and Negotiation and Decision-Making are to follow in January 2021.
“The wide range of programs we will offer — from Healthcare Mini-MBAs to Certificates in Rural Healthcare Management — will give healthcare professionals the tools to enhance their role and skill set and help us to create a leading healthcare business platform,” says Andrew. “This healthcare business platform will be developed to be a go-to center of excellence, and UofA and their subsidiaries are the best in class partner to help achieve this. With fantastic partners like these, OpusVi will have the most comprehensive offerings in healthcare in 2020 for our clients to upskill and educate their staff.”
“We know that healthcare is one of the largest and fastest growing industries in the United States,” says Paulo B. Goes, Dean and Halle Chair in Leadership of the Eller College. “This partnership, which complements the work we are already doing in our Center for Management Innovations in Healthcare, will equip those aspiring to succeed in healthcare with the necessary and effective skills to achieve their career goals. At the same time, the Healthcare Mini-MBA format is flexible, fits hyper-busy schedules and is a natural pipeline to our MBA degree programs. We’re excited to partner with OpusVi on timely and relevant educational offerings.”
