The Zicklin Executive MBA. Dare to lead.
Academic Director: Professor Cynthia Thompson
Today’s business environment is not for the faint of heart. Extraordinary challenges demand extraordinary skill sets. To be a leader it isn’t enough to be good at what you do. Whether your goal is to lead people, or lead an organization, or lead an industry, you need to take risks—to find opportunities and seize them.
We understand what you need. We don’t just prepare you to lead—we dare you to lead. We challenge you to break through your boundaries and become better than you ever thought you could be. We equip you with the confidence to reach out and grasp opportunities wherever you see them, and create opportunities where none may be visible.
