Faculty Info


AMA Faculty-the AMA Advantage

AMA seminars are led by senior executives, managers, authors, educators, consultants, course developers. And even CEOs!

AMA is distinguished by the quality of its faculty-men and women who are not just skilled platform speakers but industry experts who have achieved success in the corporate world. They are top business practitioners who have been in the trenches-and who bring their distinctive insights, practical experience and illuminating personal anecdotes to every AMA seminar session they lead.

Each of our course leaders has been selected from a pool of top candidates, has undergone rigorous AMA training and is periodically evaluated by AMA practice leaders. All bring with them many years of expertise...plus fresh new ideas and perspectives.

Our seminar leaders add value to every course not only through their practical, action-oriented presentations-but also through the expert advice they offer and the opportunities throughout the seminar session for the one-on-one mentoring critical to effective learning.

The AMA faculty...is the AMA advantage!
