    At the graduate level I don't. But if you want the industry standard you should look at the Oklahoma EDI course. OU/EDI - World's Economic Development Teacher - University of Oklahoma

    I attended two of the three sessions while serving as Director of the local Chamber of Commerce / Industrial Development board. The material is fantastic but the networking is unbelievable. I would consider it the gold standard of ED and one instance where the information gained would outweight a graduate degree.

    I would join IEDC as well http://www.iedconline.org/.
