Atlanta, GA - JANUARY 4, 2011 - Afterburner, Inc., a leadership development, training, and consulting firm and the global authority on the Flawless Execution℠ model, concluded its third consecutive year of providing customized curricula for the Executive MBA within Duke University's Fuqua School of Business Advanced Management Program (AMP), a leading executive education program.

Afterburner worked with Duke to create customized intellectual property based upon the Flawless Execution℠ model for use in the university's executive MBA program. Participants in Duke's Executive Education program prepare to navigate rapidly changing business environments to become global business leaders. Students are equipped with the skills utilized by elite military professionals for collaboration, communication, and leadership development through an intensive four-week course. The Executive MBA program at Duke was ranked 4th best in the nation by US News and World Report and 5th best by Financial Times in 2010. The executive education program is consistently ranked within the top ten executive training programs in the United States.

"Three years ago, we were pleased when this prestigious program - widely recognized as one of the toughest schools to get into - worked with us to develop curriculum for their Executive MBA," said Jim "Murph" Murphy, CEO and founder of Afterburner, Inc. "Now as we approach 2011, we look forward to continuing and expanding our proven leadership development methods for a fourth year of preparing corporate professionals for challenging environments."
