Business Leadership Program
From the Director
The Business Leadership Program provides paths and peers to help talented student leaders prepare to lead in their communities and professions. Each year, we welcome approximately 30 of our intellectually curious and committed incoming business school freshman who support, encourage, and challenge each other.
There is no one perfect leadership style, and many directions in which leadership may take you. The program provides coaching and curriculum to help you find your own strengths, hone your skills, and chart a professional path that excites you. The program supports the students, and ultimately the students support the community with their projects and their leadership.
If you are looking for a supportive community where you will learn and lead together, join us!
How do we define leadership?
We have a broad definition of leadership. We view a leader as a person who uses their own skills and strengths to motivate others toward positive change. The way that any particular leader accomplishes that feat will depend very much on that leader’s own strengths, style and aims. One key goal of the program is to help you develop your own leadership strengths, style and aims.
