Leadership Development


At the core of leadership is character. It's more than lessons learned from a textbook. At Goizueta, we aim to develop principled leaders for global enterprise from the start of your MBA experience continuing through graduation. In our Goizueta Leadership Development Program, you learn across three important pillars: academic, experiential, and reflective — each providing the experiences necessary for you to lead an effective team and deliver results. Creating dynamic leaders is infused into every aspect of what we do.

Becoming A Better Leader

Advancing Your Leadership Abilities

  • Academic

    Throughout our courses and electives, you are exposed to the fundamental core values that drive principled, effective leaders.
  • Experiential

    We integrate experiential opportunities so you practice resilient leadership in real-life situations.
  • Reflective

    Woven throughout are opportunities for you to receive immediate and consistent feedback from coaches, mentors, faculty, and other students.

At Goizueta, we make sure you get the hands-on experience you need to succeed as a leader. The Leader's Reaction Course (LRC) is a unique experiential leadership opportunity that builds upon the programs and facilities of the U.S. Army at Fort Benning, Georgia that is used to train all the Army's Officer candidates. This course builds upon the programs of the U.S. Army for developing leadership. Throughout the day-long course, you will get an intense, hands-on experience that emphasizes learning through team-based problem solving, decision making, and effective communication skills.

We place participants in team-based leadership scenarios similar to those encountered by officer candidates for the U.S. Army and solving problems with guidance and feedback by leadership coaches. Formed into small teams, participants will overcome challenges, surmount physical barriers, establish plans of action, and execute their plan to solve a problem. After each event, the participants will execute an after action review to discuss what went right, wrong, and what needs to be improved. Through this feedback process and reflection, students can then apply their lessons in subsequent challenges.
