What is it about your MBA program that students love the most?

Transformative, personalized, connected, community. Confident, never arrogant. Elite, never elitist.

MGT 572: Defining Moments: Lessons in Leadership and Character from the Top

Most successful leaders can point to a handful of "defining moments" in their careers - key choice points that defined the trajectory of their character, their career, and/or their company. What are those defining moments and why do they matter? How can aspiring business leaders prepare themselves to face their defining moments with insight and integrity? This course examines these questions by learning from notable leaders who exemplify both business excellence and personal character. Top executives from leading companies will sit down with us to talk about their "defining moments" and to engage with us in considering these questions. These conversations will be supplemented with contemporary cases and readings on leadership and character. Prerequisites: 2yr MBA students. 1.5 credits.

If you could invite a fictional character to lecture in one of your courses, who would it be and what course would he/she teach?  Why?

Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) from Suits would be invited to teach in our very own Women and Leadership course (OB 500b.) We feel her loyalty, and unwavering confidence make her unstoppable. Her experience as a managing partner during turbulent times would be a valuable topic for students to unpack in the course. 

Course description: In this course, we will take a multi-faceted approach to learning about women and leadership to better prepare students to become effective and inclusive leaders in increasingly diverse organizations. To do this we will learn from notable leaders who will share their experiences and advice with the class. 1.5 credits.

Washington University, Olin University

WashU’s MBA program is world-class, and the culture is collaborative, not cutthroat. Our program is small, usually an incoming class of 150. We are a tight-knit community invested in each other’s success on the Washington University campus and beyond. Our platform philosophy aligns the student experience. A significant portion of the WashU MBA takes place outside of the classroom and involves real projects with real clients in real-time. Students are challenged to be impactful in their career and their community.
