At the core of leadership is character. It's more than lessons learned from a textbook or trending topics in professional organizations. At Goizueta, we aim to develop principled leaders for global enterprise from the start of your MBA experience continuing through graduation.
At Program Immersion, you will learn the core values that drive principled, effective leaders -- the timeless qualities of courage, integrity, accountability, rigor, diversity, team, and community. With that foundation, you will then have leadership development infused into every aspect of your MBA curriculum. You will also explore other key leadership areas such as self-awareness, resilience, high performing teams, influencing others without direct authority, and driving performance by giving and receiving feedback. From there, you will dive into more advanced topics, such as leading and managing teams, coaching for success, mentoring, and ethics.
Throughout our courses and electives, you are exposed to the fundamental core values that drive principled, effective leaders. From there, you can join our Leadership Coaching Fellows Program (LCF), and take coaching skills, concepts, strategies, and tools learned throughout your core classes and practice them both in team and individual sessions.Read More
To ensure a holistic approach, we have integrated experiential opportunities into the program so you practice being an effective team member and resilient leader in real-life situations. Take for example our challenging Leader's Reaction Course (LRC) conducted at Fort Benning, a unique chance for you apply team-based problem solving, decision-making, and communications skills using one of the US Army’s most valued experiences. Students can also participate in our ever-popular Goizueta Advanced Leadership Academy (GALA) that offers an exciting, hands-on opportunity to apply leadership skills on the open sea with our capstone sailing excursion in the British Virgin Islands.Read More
Woven throughout are opportunities for you to receive immediate and consistent feedback from coaches, mentors, faculty, and other students through individual and team action reviews, so you understand where you excel but also where you can improve. The LCF Program even includes feedback from executive coaches who are key thought-leaders in both the academia and the business community, making the engagement even more valuable.
