What Is #EDPpresents?

About the Program

UNLV International Gaming Institute is proud to once again partner with our colleagues at the University of Nevada, Reno - College of Business and Extended Studies for the 2020 Executive Development Program (EDP).

Founded by Dr. Bill Eadington, the pioneer of commercial gaming studies, and now in its thirtieth year, EDP preserves his legacy by encouraging future leaders of the global gaming industry to think strategically about emerging industry issues.

Burgeoning leaders in every facet of the gaming/hospitality industry are encouraged to apply for this rigorous industry bootcamp. Over the 9-day program, participants will attend daily seminars taught by some of the Strip’s most influential executives and collaborate with other attendees to apply what they’ve learned in a case-study analysis.

The most prestigious leadership development academy of its kind, EDP creates lifelong connections and enables participants to gain valuable insights into an ever-changing industry.

Visit the EDP website for a full list of past speakers, an at-a-glance agenda, and for information on how to apply.
