The TMI/Wharton Associate Fellow Program is comprises three learning stages covering 25 courses that take place over nine months (although it is possible to complete it in as few as six): self-study, Wharton online learning, and a five-day Wharton Master Class held at the school’s Philadelphia campus. Assessments are continuous through the three stages, and the Associate Fellow of Talent Management credential is awarded to participants completing/qualifying for all assessment requirements.
Highly selective, the program is limited to 40 high-potential HR professionals. Participants will develop greater confidence as leaders, more capable of facing the range of professional challenges inherent to a changing workplace. They will learn from world-renowned talent management experts who share cutting-edge research and best practices that can be put into effect immediately. Participants will also build a strong network of high-achieving peers that continues to provide guidance and support long after the program has ended.
Transformational Learning in Three Stages
This program provides three distinct learning experiences:
Stage one: A program of self-study provides a current examination of the evolving science of talent management. This stage will build a common vocabulary and core of knowledge, setting the stage for the learning that follows.
Stage two: Three exclusive Wharton online courses offer instruction in leadership, HR management, and people analytics.
Participants must submit a business essay at the completion of the first two stages.
Stage three: A five-day Master Class, led by Wharton professors at the school’s Philadelphia campus, is an intensive learning experience. A certification qualifying exam is given at the conclusion of the Master Class.
