The research is compelling: organizations consistently rank strong leadership acumen among the top characteristics they look for in potential new hires.
The Mason School's Leadership Development Experience ("LDE") prepares you to meet this demand by blending an interactive classroom environment with distinctive experiential learning opportunities giving students the tools they'll need to find success in the field.
More than just an innovative curriculum, the Leadership Development Experience sets itself apart from other business school programs by providing first year MBA students with a personal leadership coach. This invaluable one-on-one experience, unique to the Mason School, partners you with one of our experienced Executive Partners who will challenge and guide your interpersonal skills and expand your leadership potential.
The framework for the LDE course is a newly revised Leadership Competency Model uniquely developed by the Mason School of Business. The course is structured around the model's eleven competencies and grouped into three broad areas.
- Personal Growth and Development
- Develop Interpersonal Skills
- Lead with Impact
At the Mason School, our goal is to energize you to "Be the Difference." The LDE builds on that commitment by inspiring you to strive for excellence in yourself and those around you. You'll emerge a compelling and principled leader with the interpersonal and problem-solving skills that are sought after by today's businesses.
