Four Elements of the Weatherhead EMBA
Managers create the worlds in which we work and live. To best prepare executives for this task, the Weatherhead EMBA is organized around four elements:
- The development of leadership skills at the levels of self, team, organization and society,
- The sociopolitical structures in which leadership is most needed, including government, the world economy and the rapidly changing realm of technology,
- The language of business, with a special focus on how it is spoken in the boardroom, and
- The achievement of change in organizations by leading design-oriented teams.
These four elements create a leadership package that will prime you to assume a more responsible and influential position in an existing organization or to build a dynamic new organization. Together, these skills help leaders act with confidence and decisiveness in the face of uncertainty.
I knew that an EMBA from Case Western Reserve wasn’t only going to give me the skill set to control my destiny, but it would also open up more doors.
I immediately fell in love with Weatherhead. I just felt at home and welcomed, and I am indebted to the school. I really feel like it changed my life.
