The dynamics of teamwork are too complex to be understood in the classroom alone. This program provides a distinctive combination of classroom and case work, along with daily experiential exercises. It builds upon years of programs by Professor Mike Useem and Wharton Leadership Ventures, which have immersed MBA students and executives in rigorous outdoor challenges around the globe. Senior guest speakers also offer their experiences from business, the military, and other areas.
