  • 1.  MBA Leadership Project

    Posted 07-15-2020 08:46
    Hi, everyone!

    I'm seeking new project ideas for my MBA leadership course. These could be individual or group projects.

    If anyone has a leadership project that has worked well for you, I'd love to hear about it!

    Thank you!

    Hi Adam,
    I am not sure what size projects you are looking for but one thing I do is projects with not for profits in our community.  There is a lot of learning for the MBAs regarding perspective taking, mental models, listening, dialogue, influence, change management, etc. that can come from these types of projects.  They are also a great way to expose MBAs to ways they may be able to get involved in their future communities post-graduation.  Happy to chat further if it would be helpful.

    Thank you, Laura! We did a similar project in my own MBA program years ago, and we really enjoyed it. I appreciate the suggestion!
