University of the Aftermarket Opens Recruitment for the 2012-2013 Leadership 2.0 Class

The program is designed for early- to mid-career, management-track, high-potential aftermarket professionals in all market segments.

MIDLAND, Mich. – The University of the Aftermarket has officially opened recruitment for the next Leadership 2.0 class, which begins Sept. 9-14, 2012, on the campus of Northwood University in Midland, Mich. The second session will be held April 14-19, 2013, at Northwood’s West Palm Beach, Fla., campus. Participants must attend both sessions.
 
Leadership 2.0 is an intensive post-graduate style leadership and business skills education experience designed to promote the development of the next generation of aftermarket leaders. In addition to the two weeklong classroom segments – which feature lectures, roundtable discussions, networking sessions and team research and problem-solving activities – participants work off-site to develop and present team research projects covering key industry issues. Featured presenters include leading aftermarket executives and faculty members of Northwood University DeVos Graduate School of Management. Class size is limited to 35.
 
The program is designed for early- to mid-career, management-track, high-potential aftermarket professionals in all market segments. Program participants include a mix of aftermarket professionals from manufacturing, jobbers, program groups, warehouses, service dealers, associations and other industry segments allied to the motor vehicle aftermarket. This collaborative mix of industry levels is unique in the industry and adds to the educational experience.
 
“Having suppliers, distributors, service professionals and other critical industry segments in the same room, discussing some of the major issues of our industry, is one of the key components of Leadership 2.0. Indeed, the participants learn as much from each other as they do from our faculty,” said University of the Aftermarket Director Brian Cruickshank, MAAP.
 
The cost of the two-week program is $6,100 and includes tuition, class materials, meals and lodging. More information and registration details are available at www.universityoftheaftermarket.com (click “Course Calendar”) or call 800-551-2882.
 
Participants receive 7.0 CEUs toward their Automotive Aftermarket Professional (AAP) or Master Automotive Aftermarket Professional (MAAP) designations.
