Executive Master Class
Preparing federal leaders for the Senior Executive Service
The Partnership’s Executive Master Class helps agencies identify
and prepare aspiring senior executive leaders. The 80-hour

All sessions will take place at the Partnership’s
offices in Washington, D.C.
The cost is $5,500 per participant.
The Master Class meets for two and a half days
per month, over the course of four months, for a
total of 80 hours of training. Days 1 and 2 are full
days and day 3 is a half day.
