Leadership

Prepare for common leadership challenges with classes on strategy, communication, negotiation, persuasion, and innovation—the essential skills of every great leader. You will learn about effective, strategic leadership under different organizational conditions, gain insights into your own leadership style, and participate in challenging group exercises that help you develop confidence as a leader.

Ethics

With insight and expertise from The Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity, we explore topical issues confronting U.S. and global corporations and capital markets. Analyzing subjects around transparency in corporate reporting and legal and ethical corporate behavior helps you develop ways of thinking through ethical dilemmas in an increasingly complex world.

Sustainability

Understand the environmental and social challenges that contribute to the complexity of the corporate environment. You will learn from professors and guest speakers who discuss how sustainability creates value for businesses, why some companies are making sustainability a core part of their business strategy, and how sustainability is relevant for supply chain management, financial reporting, strategic leadership, and ethical behavior.

Globalization

Zicklin’s EMBA will prepare you to lead effectively across cultures by exposing you to differences in perspectives, institutions, and practices around the world. You will also learn how to evaluate foreign markets and assess political and economic risks, as well as develop an understanding of the challenges and opportunities of managing dispersed organizations operating outside of the U.S.
