The Harry L. Davis Executive Education Scholarship for Nonprofit Leaders seeks to provide leaders of nonprofit organizations the opportunity to benefit from a week-long executive education program at Chicago Booth in one of the following areas of study: finance, leadership/organizational behavior, marketing and sales, or strategy. We are targeting, in particular, candidates of organizations that lack the resources traditionally needed to support their directors’ pursuits of executive education. We hope that after learning from The Chicago Approach™, nonprofit executives will be able to use their new experiences to position their organizations more competitively while benefiting society.
Harry L. Davis, the Roger L. and Rachel M. Goetz Distinguished Service Professor of Creative Management, has personally shaped leadership development at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Over the past 50 years, Professor Davis has pioneered innovative programs such as Leadership Exploration and Development (LEAD), which strengthen students’ communication and interpersonal skills, and Management Lab courses, which supplement the traditional MBA curriculum with client-project teams. Professor Davis’s profound effect on Chicago Booth is deeply felt—this scholarship honors this legacy and his commitment to management education.
