Power your learning with experience
Experience-powered learning runs throughout the program. In the core curriculum, you'll work on two real-world business challenges, one focused on competing in a changing business environment and the other on a business social responsibility issue. The program includes additional elective experience-powered learning segments you choose from a set of options.
In the first challenge, you'll take on the role of a c-level executive grappling with setting strategy in a changing business world. You'll work in a team with fellow students and consult with current or recently retired senior executives playing the part of CEO – and then make your recommendations. Based on feedback from the CEO, you'll make adjustments. In the process, you'll deepen your knowledge of the business subjects you've studied, learn how to apply that knowledge to critical issues in real-world situations, and hone skills, particularly the human skills so pivotal to business success.
Experience-powered learning focuses on challenges that both sharpen your skills for immediate impact and develop capabilities for effectiveness and leadership as the business world changes.
