Eric Saine

Welcome to the McGill Executive Institute (MEI)

McGill University’s hub for executive education.

I believe that the purpose of learning for working adults is to change in order to feel more confident and capable in whatever aspect of professional life they want to pursue more successfully. This might include making the most of new opportunities, updating skills to take on a new job role, reversing old habits, becoming more efficient and productive, and conquering ambitious goals. While we are well known for developing the potential of “executives” including senior managers and board members, we also offer a wide range of lifelong learning solutions for younger managers, professionals and high-potentials.

My role is to guide and support faculty and staff who are experts at human potential. We place a strong emphasis on upfront needs analysis to understand just what are the desired learning and business goals for you and/or your team. From there, we source outstanding faculty who bring you meaningful learning moments grounded in innovative research, tied to outcomes, and aligned with your day-to-day reality. Finally, we use a variety of delivery and follow-up methods so that learning translates to action and is sustained back in the workplace.

The choice of where to go and who to trust has never been greater in a world where learning is everywhere – at work (internal training sessions, communities of practice, mentorships), in the community (academic institutions, consulting firms, professional associations), and, of course, through endless online and digital options. I hope that MEI becomes a value-added part of that mix for you and that we earn your trust as a personalized knowledge partner.
