Curriculum & Course Details

This program takes a fresh approach to leadership development by engaging participants well beyond the classroom.

During the first session, participants are placed into teams that will work together on extracurricular activities for the duration of the program. With instructor-led sessions every third week, you have two weeks in between to complete a variety of pre- and post-session work and participate in team virtual activities and group coaching forums.
