Program Features

"Leadership for Change strengths include a diverse faculty, interactive teaching methods and applicble tools for change.  The curriculum offers an untradional view of business that cannot be found in any other program.  The LC teams also provide a support network and resource for implementing ideas."


  • Multiple Bottom Line Awareness-foster the value of simultaneously doing well and doing "good" for society, business and the environment.
  • Interactive Learning Community-learn with and through each other, faculty and business partners. Intense class participation and group interactions draw from experiences, readings, discussion, assignments, and a work based project.
  • Work Based Learning-learning is reinforced throughout the program: project module, topical workshops, learning teams, journals, learning coaches and organizational work. Work based learning integrates theory, actions and reflections on leadership with a work-based project.
  • Learning Teams-join a learning team of six or seven participants to enhance learning. Learning Teams provide guidance, support and advice around the work-based learning project, as well as course readings, assignments, and dilemmas in the work environment.
  • Learning Coaches-access a learning coach or mentor from among the faculty, business partners and alumni volunteers. Each participant can initiate contact with the learning coach as needed through the program on matters related to the coursework, assignments, the work-based learning project or individual situations.
  • Organizational Support-identify a sponsor or champion from work to ensure that the project is strategically aligned and organizationally supported. Internal sponsors are invited to a special event to highlight the goals and benefits of Leadership for Change participation.
