"Leadership is one of the things you cannot delegate. You either exercise it, or you abdicate it."- Roberto C. Goizueta
A Matter of Character
In your first semester, you join an immersive program aimed at developing you as a principled leader through integrated learning, hands-on practice, and immediate feedback. Through our Goizueta Leadership Development Program, you will learn across three important pillars: academic, experiential, and reflective, having the experiences necessary to be an effective team member, and deliver invaluable results.
Leadership Development Pillars
There is no question that leadership skills are central to being a success in business. That's why at Goizueta, we make cultivating these talents central to your MBA experience.
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, and take coaching skills, concepts, strategies, and tools learned throughout your core classes and practice them both in team and individual sessions.
We integrate experiential opportunities so you practice resilient leadership in real-life situations. Our challenging Leader's Reaction Course conducted at Fort Benning uniquely applies team-based problem solving, decision-making, and communications skills using one of the US Army's most valued experiences. The Goizueta Advanced Leadership Academy applies leadership skills with our capstone open sea sailing excursion.
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 Leadership Coaching Fellows Program even includes feedback from executive coaches who are key thought-leaders in both the academia and the business community.
