Business schools have been experiencing a number of challenges over the past several years including declining enrollments. One of the few bright spots in this mosaic has been an increase in demand for executive management education. This trend can be attributed, in part, to globalization and to continued technological developments. These dynamics call for new and innovative systems for improving the delivery of executive management education. The traditional pedagogy is being replaced by a combination of time-honored and web-based customized learning systems. These so-called hybrid learning nets (HLN) are designed to optimize the learning experience. Equally important, HLN help enhance the overall business curriculum by improving course integration and consistency. HLN offer extensive opportunities for collaborative learning that often positively impact the educational experience. An essential feature of HLN is feedback. HLN can deliver specific content based on the background and performance of individual students. The purpose of this paper is to outline ways in which HLN can be used to improve the delivery of executive management education programs.
