Core Requirements

As a complement to MBA coursework, students must complete the three core graduation requirements as part of the Accelerate Leadership program. Students complete each of the three below components as a crucial part of their development and success, both during the MBA program and in the working world.

Individual Leadership Assessment

Our leadership program includes an assessment that evaluates students' behavioral competencies and generates an individual feedback report that is tailored for personal leadership development.

One-to-One Leadership Assessment Debrief

Once MBA students have completed their leadership assessments, they each receive a detailed report of their leadership competencies. Every student attends a one-to-one coaching session to receive guidance in interpreting their assessment reports.

Accelerate Leadership Workshop Experience

The workshop experience consists of a deeper dive into specific leadership areas to increase self-awareness and complement students’ MBA coursework.
