Duke Corporate Education (Duke CE) is a global provider of non-degree custom executive education and other learning and development services. They are a not-for-profit support corporation to Duke University, having been created in July 2000 as a carve-out from Duke’s Fuqua School of Business.

Duke CE is staffed by 115 business practitioners and academics. Additionally it employs the services of significant numbers of educators made up of academics, consultants, coaches, facilitators, actors, industry experts, retired executives and others.

History[edit]

Duke Corporate Education (Duke CE) was established in July 2000 as a carve-out of the custom executive education practice of the Duke University's Fuqua School of Business.

Encouraged to employ a radically new business model integrating academic and corporate philosophies, Duke CE grew rapidly. Many clients being headquartered in Europe, the need for a greater presence there soon became clear. Thus in June 2003 a joint venture with the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) was established. In recognition of the opportunities in India, a collaboration with the Indian Institute of Management - Ahmedabad (IIMA) was created in June 2006.

Partner Schools[edit]

In addition to Duke University, Duke CE has formal collaborative arrangements with the London School of Economics, the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad.

Ranking[edit]

In 2013 Duke CE was ranked #1 in custom executive education by the Financial Times for the eleventh year in a row, and by BusinessWeek in its biennial survey for the sixth time in a row.[1]

Offices[edit]

Duke CE’s headquarters are in Durham, NC, USA. Other offices are in London, UK; Johannesburg, South Africa; Singapore; Ahmedabad, India; as well as Carlsbad, CA, USA.
