Participants will be contacted by the program team to select which time slot best fits their schedules. One day a week and one intensive week in a month.

Please note: Pre-program work will begin about 1 month prior to the start of the program. Pre-work will include self-paced, asynchronous online coursework; introductions to your virtual learning groups, faculty, and your ABS executive coach; and community networking events. Participants should set aside 08-15 hours per week to complete pre-work before the start.
