To benefit fully from the VPMP, participants are to attend the full program and follow the four modules in order: Human Resource Management, Accounting & Financial Management, Marketing, and Strategic Thinking. This is important, since during your later modules, you will have opportunities to interact with faculty from previous modules and discuss your progress in implementing the ideas you’ve developed.

Registrants that cancel 30 days or less before a module will incur a $250 cancellation fee.

Fees do not include lodging and transportation. Convenient and comfortable lodging, with wireless access, is available at Purdue's on-campus, full-service historic Union Club Hotel, located directly across from (and connected by underground walkway) the Krannert Center for Executive Education. There are a limited number of queen-size bedrooms and they will be assigned on a first-come basis.

Most students experience little or no added expense during the program. Program fees cover breakfasts, refreshment breaks, daily luncheons, and light suppers. The university's recreational facilities will be available at no charge to program participants (see staff for a ‘swipe card’). Recreational facilities include gymnasiums, fitness equipment, courts for a variety of indoor sporting activities, an indoor running track, and an indoor swimming pool.

Although most students enjoy dining as a group, there are a number of dining facilities on campus, in the Village area that adjoins the campus, and in the Greater Lafayette area.

For each module, you should plan to arrive by late Thursday afternoon. All modules except Marketing Management have Thursday evening sessions to initiate the topic and familiarize participants with key concepts/terms. 

Program costs are generally considered business expenses for tax purposes. Please consult your tax advisor if in doubt.

If you have special needs, such as dietary requirements or handicap access, please indicate this at the time of registration. Every effort will be made to accommodate your needs.

Please note: Purdue University is not responsible for expenses incurred due to cancellations.
