Leadership Development

We believe that leadership development is an individualized process that is most effective when integrated into every element of the MBA curriculum and most valuable when reinforced through real-world application. The Weekend MBA uses a cyclical model for leadership development: you’ll learn leadership principles and theory, practice their application and receive feedback from our world-class faculty and your experienced peers. As you progress, you’ll master skills you can use to lead change in your current position, and you’ll develop the kind of leadership style self-awareness that will enable you to further define and realize your career goals.

A week-long residential immersion kicks things off with coursework, study group introductions and networking opportunities. Thereafter you’ll meet in Chapel Hill every third weekend for an uninterrupted residency devoted to concentrated coursework and shared learning experiences with your equally accomplished peers. Intervening weeks are free for business travel, family responsibilities, and about 12-20 hours per week for individual or team study. The program leverages asynchronous, tech-enabled coursework to ensure that residencies are as productive and dynamic as possible.
