PHILADELPHIA, PA: Emeritus, in collaboration with the Aresty Institute of Executive Education at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, announces the launch of its seven-month Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) Program. This program is designed to help senior revenue executives step into global leadership roles by equipping participants with the skills and mindset to strategize for sustainable revenue generation. Emeritus, the global leader in making high-quality education accessible and affordable, has begun enrollment for this program that starts in June 2024.

According to LinkedIn, the head of revenue operations is the fastest-growing job title in the United States, growing at 15 percent globally. The CRO Program enables participants to successfully integrate various organizational functions, find new avenues for revenue growth and optimization, and drive long-term profitability. Through a blend of live online sessions with faculty and the cohort success coach and periodic guest lectures from industry leaders, participants will gain the mindset to strategize for profitable and sustainable revenue generation. Participants will also meet peers from multiple cohorts, faculty, and industry experts during two days of on-campus networking. Upon completion of the program, participants will be awarded a verified digital certificate and have a pathway to apply for Wharton alumni status.

“The CRO Program will equip participants with multiple skills necessary for managing revenues including, but not limited to, forecasting revenues and the synergy with new pricing models, introducing new products, and scaling new ventures. Individuals will emerge with a strategic vision of the C-suite while having a tactical view of the multiple functions involved in driving revenue,” says Raghuram Iyengar, academic director of the program.

This program is ideal for executives involved in revenue management for their organizations or functions, including CROs, VPs of sales or marketing, C-suite executives, and functional heads.

“The robust curriculum of the CRO Program equips participants with the critical skills and knowledge to drive a sustainable growth strategy in their organization,” said Mike Malefakis, president of university partnerships at Emeritus. “We are excited to collaborate with Wharton Executive Education to deliver this impactful program.
