The State Executive Development Institute (SEDI) is an executive style, graduate level, program offered by the John C. Stennis Institute of Government and Community Development. The Institute is designed to prepare mid to upper level state and local government executives to be more efficient leaders. During the week long, intensive course, a broad range of topics are delivered by state and local officials, nationally recognized leaders, and Mississippi State University’s premier teaching and research faculty. Curriculum topics include leadership, management theory, conflict resolution, ethics, and other pertinent issues facing our future state leaders. Participants in the class will network with other state executives as well as the Institute faculty and leadership.
Additionally, the Institute may be taken for credit in the Master of Public Policy and Administration program at Mississippi State University. Additional fees and prerequisites may apply.
