Using online registration, can I register someone other than myself, or register multiple people?

Please contact us at seminars@case.edu or call 216.368.6413 or 800.736.6403. We will be happy to accommodate you.

Where can I find information about directions and accommodations?

Please see Plan Your Visit for all information regarding directions, parking, and hotel accommodations.

How can I learn which program is right for me?

There is never a simple answer to this important question. Often the best first step to take is to have a discussion with your supervisor, or someone in your HR, Organizational or Talent Development department to talk about your career aspirations and performance goals. With that information, you can discuss what skills or competencies you may need to meet and exceed your goals.

In addition, you can speak with a learning advisor at Weatherhead Executive Education any time to discuss the specifics of programs we offer. We are happy to help you select a program that will set you on the path towards greater success. For a personal and free consultation, call us at 216.368.6413 or 800.736.6403, or email seminars@case.edu.

My name has changed. How can I update my account?

You can email seminars@case.edu or call 216.368.6413 or 800.736.6403 to change your name, including prefix and suffix, in our records.

How do I register for one of the certificates?

The easiest way is to register online. Simply select the appropriate classes from those listed in the certificate description (check link). We track your progress automatically. Alternatively, you can contact us by phone at 216.368.6413 or 800.736.6403, and we can handle your registration for you. Note that a program can only be applied toward the requirements of one certificate.

Remember that although our programs are modular and we do our best to be sensitive to time conflicts that arise, you must complete your certificate within the 18 month time frame to avoid taking additional classes (although you just might want to anyway).
