July 15, 2008, Volume 55, No. 1



The Aresty Institute of Executive Education has a new executive director to oversee daily operations. Judy McHugh, formerly Wharton’s senior director of customized programs, was named to her new position by Tom Colligan, Wharton’s vice dean of executive education.

“With her passion for the business, for embodying the highest principles of leadership, and ­most of all for our clients, Judy is uniquely qualified to help us continue to set the bar for excellence in executive educa tion,” Mr. Colligan said.

Ms. McHugh has been with Wharton Executive Education for more than five years and has more than 20 years experience in the industry, partnering with executives of major corporations and professional services firms. As executive director, she will spearhead efforts to enhance the School’s close partnerships with executive education clients.

Ms. McHugh will be responsible for the daily operations of Wharton’s $80 million executive education division, with a staff of 95. One of her first objectives will be to deepen collaborative relationships between Wharton and other Penn divisions in order to provide clients with the full spectrum of what Penn has to offer. “We can reach into the university and bring in knowledge from areas that have a direct and significant impact on business,” Ms. McHugh said.
