Kraig Vondran of Manhattan is among 160 executives from around the world to complete training in the Harvard Business School’s Executive Education Program.
Vondran, chief financial officer at Farrar Corporation, a ductile iron foundry and machining company in Manhattan and Norwich, completed Harvard’s Program for Leadership Development (PLD), an accelerated learning experience incorporating one-on-one coaching, living groups, personal strategy projects and practical applications led by full-time Harvard Business School professors.
The program meets executives’ needs and leadership challenges while delivering the key benefits of an executive Master of Business Administration degree.
During the seven-month program, Vondran completed four required modules online and two on-campus sessions, each lasting two weeks with intensive group learning. He will return to the Boston-Cambridge campus in November for an optional week-long program focusing on negotiations and strategic decision making.
Upon completion of the program, Vondran will become a Harvard Business School alumnus.
The PLD is Vondran’s second experience at Harvard Business School. He completed the Driving Corporate Performance program in 2011.
Vondran has worked for Farrar since 2007.
