Learning to Lead

The Chicago Booth MBA experience begins with LEAD, a hands-on and practical MBA course on leadership designed to improve self-awareness and interpersonal effectiveness by providing students with an opportunity to benchmark themselves with respect to critical aspects of leadership: working in teams, influencing others, managing conflict, and communicating and presenting. One of the first experiential MBA leadership development courses at a major business school, LEAD is an integral component of all MBA programs at Booth.

Beyond LEAD, students can choose to further their leadership development with additional courses highlighted here:
