Guest Editors:

Today’s competitive business environment has led to a greater appreciation of multidisciplinary approaches to executive education and management training. In fact, such executive education and life-long learning can make the difference between success and failure. For example, engineers are often faced with situations in which their decision-making skills are enhanced by utilising knowledge gained from several disciplines. In particular, elements of economics, leadership and management come into play when designing an optimal course of action.

The aim of this special issue is to draw together the innovative approaches, best practices, and pedagogical methods that have led to successful outcomes. The papers will inform readers of ways to implement continuous improvement, increase individual and corporate benefits, and to achieve long-term success in a competitive and constantly changing executive education and life-long learning marketplace.
