Executive education in IS is under the scrutiny of many institution for the potential to bring in financial revenues. However teaching executives can be a very challenging task because of their previous experiences, variation in their previous education, and multiplicity of motivations for pursuing a continuous education. The panel aims at sharing successful experiences and highlighting challenges of dealing with executive audiences. The panel will prese...

Background: Research on the effects of music education on cognitive abilities has generated increasing interest across the scientific community. Nonetheless, longitudinal studies investigating the effects of structured music education on cognitive sub-functions are still rare. Prime candidates for investigating a relationship between academic achievement and music education appear to be executive functions such as planning, working memory, and inhibition. Methods: One...

Executive function, a term encompassing domain general cognitive processes associated with working memory, inhibitory control, and the flexible shifting of attention is widely studied in research in neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience. Only within the last two decades have researchers examined the development of these cognitive abilities in typical child populations. A growing body of research indicates that executive function abilities develop rapidly in early childhood, ar...

Although there has been much recent attention to young children's development of executive function and early mathematics, few studies have integrated the two. Here we review the evidence regarding executive function and mathematic achievement in the early years. After defining the executive function processes we consider, we briefly address the question of whether executive function can be taught in schools. We then turn to the relations between executive func...

Executive functions are involved in the development of academic skills and are critical for functioning in school settings. The relevance of executive functions to education begins early and continues throughout development, with clear impact on achievement. Diverse efforts increasingly suggest ways in which facilitating development of executive function may be used to improve academic performance. Such interventions seek to alter the trajectory of executive de...

Childhood socioeconomic status (SES), as measured by parental education and family income, is highly predictive of academic achievement, but little is known about how specific cognitive systems shape SES disparities in achievement outcomes. This study investigated the extent to which executive function (EF) mediated associations between parental education and family income and changes in reading and math achievement in a sample of 336 children between the ages of 6 and 15 ye...

OBJECTIVES: To examine the relationship between performance on executive function measures and subsequent mobility outcomes in community-dwelling older adults. DESIGN: Randomized controlled clinical trial. SETTING: Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. PARTICIPANTS: Community-dwelling older adults (N = 179; mean age 66.4). INTERVENTION: A 12-month exercise trial with two arms: an aerobic exercise group and a stretching and strengthening group. MEASUREMENTS: Established cognitive tests of executi...

The income gains in the top 1 percent are the primary cause for the rapid growth in U.S. inequality since the late 1970s. Managers and executives of firms account for a large proportion of these top earners. Chief executive officers (CEOs) in particular have seen their compensation increase faster than the growth in firm size. We propose that changes in the macro patterns of the distribution of CEO compensation resulted from a process of diffusion within localized networks, propaga...

Abstract A growing body of research has demonstrated associations between socioeconomic status (SES) and children's early executive function (EF). Yet, although theory and research underscore that distinct components of SES, such as parent education and income, make unique contributions to children's outcomes, few studies have examined these in relation to EF abilities on a population level. To address this gap, we examined a large sample (N = 13, 000) of children from the Early Ch...
