MMI Executive IQ® Program Wins Two Gold Awards and One Silver Award in Professional, Executive and Leadership Development

New York, NY, September 14, 2023 – The Money Management Institute’s (MMI) Executive IQ® program is honored to have won two gold awards and one silver award of excellence from Brandon Hall Group™.

This is the second year in a row that Executive IQ has won the coveted Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Awards®.  These awards recognize best practices for initiatives in Learning and Development, Talent Management, Leadership Development, Talent Acquisition, Human Resources, Sales Performance, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and the Future of Work.

Executive IQ won the awards in the following categories:
Best Association Professional Development Program – Gold
Best Advance in Executive Development — Gold
Best Advance in Leadership Development – Silver

Entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group™ analysts, and executives based on these criteria: alignment to their business need and environment; program design, functionality, and delivery; adoption, integration, user experience, innovation, and creativity; and overall effectiveness, impact and measurable benefits.

“Excellence Award winners are shown to be organizations that truly value their employees and invest in them through their human capital management programs. These HCM programs have been validated as best in class for business value and the impact on the employees themselves,” said Brandon Hall Group™ Chief Operating Officer Rachel Cooke, HCM Excellence Awards program leader.

Now in its third year of operation, Executive IQ was designed and is delivered in collaboration with the University of Virginia Darden Executive Education & Lifelong Learning (EELL), PWC, and Microsoft. Last year, the program won two gold awards for Best Advance in Leadership Development and Best Association Professional Development.

“Money Management Institute is committed to equipping leaders with a dynamic mindset to navigate the unprecedented disruptions in the financial services industry. We’re proud to have received recognition in three fiercely competitive categories and we extend our heartfelt gratitude to our dedicated participants who have made an indelible impact on the program. We also owe our unprecedented success, two years in a row, to our invaluable partners at Darden Executive Education, whose commitment to excellence, creativity, and partnership continues to empower these executives for the opportunities of tomorrow,” said Tim Williams, Director of Education Initiatives for MMI and Program Director for Executive IQ.

“We are so proud that our partnership program, Executive IQ, received these two golds and one silver awards,” said Shaun Rozyn, EELL Managing Director for Client Solutions and Program Director for Executive IQ. “Many organizations in the wealth and asset management industry are using this experience as a rite of passage for high potential senior leaders to progress to the C-Suite. The world-class content from academic and industry professionals, executive coaching and access to industry leaders has positioned Executive IQ as the “must-attend” program in the industry!”
