The Executive Education Program was created to foster cooperation between the private and public sector for national development goals.

The program promotes leadership and governance through modules that orient public officials and politicians in the fundamental elements of leadership.

Executive Education Programs continue to uphold the Ateneo tradition in academic excellence in relation to providing Christ-like services for others. It also offers short and focused training programs that help provide methods and strategies to concretize ethical governance and sustainable development.

The program trains political leaders, civil servants and corporate managers to conceptualize, develop, and manage programs relevant and responsive to the social, economic and political needs of Filipinos. Significantly, the program offers a 'leadership sanctuary', where reform-oriented and value-driven public officials can meet, support and sustain one another.

The Ateneo School of Government is accredited by the Civil Service Commission to conduct training and seminars particularly for government sectors.
