Educating Leaders

The challenges business leaders face today are huge. Climate change. Economic inequality. The interplay of free markets and state control around the world. Disruptive technologies. Pressures to maximize shareholder returns and corporate responsibility. The world needs leaders with the ability to look past surface differences, to carefully weigh risks and opportunities in an uncertain situation, to apply technical skills while maintaining a long-term vision, and to create value for themselves and those around them.

We believe this model of elevated leadership is best developed through a rigorous but big-picture oriented business education that draws on the intellectual resources of an eminent, global university.
