SCTE Goes to School

9:30 AM -- The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) , cable's engineering and standards body, will take its education program to the next level in 2011 through a new partnership with the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.

The week-long Tuck Executive Education program, set for April 26-30, aims to bring together execs from cable's operator, vendor, and programmer groups, using a curriculum that features classes such as "Connecting Strategic Vision to Implementation," "Why Smart Executives Fail," and "Understanding and Executing for Value Creation in Broadband Services." SCTE is accepting applications through Feb. 15, 2011.

A key intent is to help round out the education of cable's engineering ranks and groom them for executive roles as the industry continues to evolve and adopt new technologies such as IP video.

"The one [goal] at the top is around the ability to leverage all of the technical and operational skills we have learned into leadership skills," SCTE president and CEO Mark Dzuban tells Light Reading Cable.

The class size is limited, but SCTE hopes to accept about 40 applications in the program's first year.

More detail on the program and an update on SCTE's near-term goals will be shared in an upcoming Q&A with Dzuban.
