The Automotive Executive Development Program (Auto EDP) is a two week program designed to equip present and future auto industry leaders with the knowledge and skills required for transforming the automotive industry in China, North America, and around the world. Competitive market forces and government policies are driving the auto industry to achieve a stronger position in the global economy through advanced manufacturing, innovative supply chain strategies, and technologies such as intelligent and autonomous driving.

Through close collaboration between the University of Michigan Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute and the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, the EDP addresses the challenges and opportunities of this industry transformation. Kicking off with a 1-day forum in China or America, the first week focuses on technology immersion exploring cutting-edge trends in vehicle development in Palo Alto and California, followed by one week in-depth look at the auto industry through company visits and interactions with expert faculty.

The program is delivered in English with Chinese simultaneous translation, making it accessible to automotive executives from around the world.
