We’d like to introduce you to a few of our exceptional faculty…

Dr. Patrick Sweeney

Dr. Patrick Sweeney is a Professor of the Practice of Management and the Executive Director of Wake Forest School of Business’ Allegacy Center for Leadership and Character. He is an experienced senior leader-practitioner with over 39 years of experience leading high performing organizations and scholar whose research focuses on leader, leadership, and organizational development.

“Content for Executive Education needs to be proven, practical, and effective. Leaders learn best through hands-on applications and discussion with fellow leaders.”

Dr. Kenny Herbst

Dr. Kenny Herbst is the Associate Dean of the Undergraduate Business Program, a Sisel Faculty Fellow, and an Associate Professor of Marketing in the School of Business at Wake Forest University. Dr. Herbst’s expertise includes consumer behavior/psychology, strategic marketing, and food marketing.

“Teaching in our Wake Forest School of Business Executive Education Program has been an incredibly rewarding experience. Attendees, from companies small to large, are asked to arrive with a business challenge. We work on their challenges in small groups so that they receive not only my feedback — but also the feedback of their fellow executive attendees. Attendees return to the office with insights gleaned from case-based learning and highly engaging and thought-provoking marketing discussions.”

Dr. Jeffrey Camm

Dr. Jeffrey Camm is Associate Dean of Business Analytics and the Inmar Presidential Chair in Business Analytics at the Wake Forest University School of Business. His scholarship is on the application of optimization modeling to difficult decision problems in a diverse set of application areas including, operations planning and scheduling, supply chain optimization, product design, and conservation.

“I am passionate about helping companies understand the analytics landscape and how analytics can be leveraged to drive value in their organizations. Some companies are too focused on the technology, data and buzz words. To be successful with analytics, you need to start with the business problem and bring to the table only the necessary data and technology needed to solve the problem. The ability to properly define a significant problem to solve, whose solution will drive ROI, is a big part of the challenge.”
