Executive Management Institute (EMI)

NRCA's Executive Management Institute (EMI) offers seasoned roofing executives a unique educational experience. Executives who have had primary responsibility for leading their companies for at least 10 years will have the opportunity to:
  • Learn from world-renowned Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management professors and industry experts
  • Apply learned concepts through team exercises
  • Receive one-on-one, company-specific feedback on assignments
  • Network with industry peers
EMI-4 will address two topics: effective leadership through improved communication and succession planning including financial considerations. Specific program details will be posted with the application.

See below for decision schedule.

EMI consists of two face-to-face sessions with time to read and plan in between. Both sessions are held at Kellogg's downtown Chicago campus.

EMI-4 session dates:

Session 1: Saturday, Nov. 11 — Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017
Session 2: Sunday, April 8 — Monday, April 9, 2018

Program details:
  • Early application deadline is Aug. 31, 2017, with decisions made by Sept. 15, 2017. Final application deadline is Oct. 20, 2017, with all decisions made by Nov. 1, 2017. After Sept. 15, 2017, admitted applicants will be considered on a space-available, first-come basis.
