  What Previous Participants Have to Say About the Program

“Thanks to the University of Pennsylvania for a world-class executive education program on regulation. The professors, content and course organization are truly remarkable!

“I appreciated the richness of the learning experience afforded by this course. I have taken many substantive lessons away from the course, and it has allowed me to reframe and reassess my own view and approach to regulation, as both a regulator and as a private citizen, and to energize and refresh that approach going forward. Well done!”

“This program was exceptionally done. The presenters and participants were knowledgeable, insightful and engaging and made the program an enjoyable experience.”

The program was an excellent tour de force through the essentials of regulatory management and emerging trends.”
