This program has a superb blend of world-class faculty, an integrated curriculum, and a strongly interactive and diverse group of classmates from high-performing global companies. The material challenged our traditional views and learning, and stretched us immensely to expand our understanding on what leadership needs to be in the 21st century.

The program provided me with a deep knowledge of techniques that will fast track my career. Additionally, having a group with different experiences and internationally represented was fundamental to setting personal goals and to developing and managing my team.”

This is a great leadership development program. Too often in today's business environment, many leaders are so focused on managing their business that they do not take the time to focus on their own career development. We are always making excuses regarding the lack of time we have to further our own development. This was the best use of my time at the perfect time in my career.”

I must say, Wharton was truly an experience that punctuated my values...and overarching imperatives. The class was insightful, enjoyable, and profound. There were times that it struck an emotional cord bringing tears to my eyes. Most importantly it drove home the values of integrity, authenticity, empathy, and transparency.
I better appreciate the need to network externally, remain current, and position myself for change, while maintaining balanced physical, professional, and personal activities. Nearly half of the classmates were internationals…and their perspectives were so important to the success of the experience.
All in all, it made me aware that modern management is a psychological discipline and an art-form requiring oneself to take the high road regardless of the pressures and stress…. I am so pleased about the opportunity to experience this program, as it has enabled me to truly be a better leader.”

This was an excellently delivered set of courses that every leader and future leader should experience.

This experience allowed me to make changes that have positively impacted the way I approach my professional career. The most amazing element for me was the transformation I saw on the personal front after I reprioritized my activities.
