Seneca wants to engage with you — a valued member of the Seneca community — to provide you with a unique opportunity for professional development.

Seneca wants to invest in your continued professional and personal growth. Professional development usually involves experiences like leadership training, workshops in organizational strategy, and communication seminars. Although these experiences can be valuable, they are arm’s-length in that they don’t often allow you to reflect on the opportunities and challenges faced by a real organization.

Seneca has designed a professional development opportunity that will allow you to take time to reflect on key decisions faced by an organization in your network with the help of a leadership coach while you engage in case writing. This opportunity is valued at close to $7,000, and it is being offered to you at no charge.

Seneca is prepared to make a significant investment in your professional development. We are inviting you to consider being part of the Seneca Case Development Centre by learning how to write and teach a case that features a key decision-maker facing a real decision in a real organization in your network. Writing a case starts with a professional development training program that will allow you to hone skills in writing, communication, critical thinking, decision-making, and leadership. Seneca has developed a mentorship program that will support you in the writing process at every step of the way. We encourage you to consult the FAQs below and consider applying for this opportunity to become a published author.
