Launched in 2007, this seminar brings successful corporate leaders to the Bay Area MBA program to teach important lessons from the frontlines of industry. Executives share their first-hand experiences of the complexities of today’s business world, inspiring students to seek new ways to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
This year’s Executive Leadership Seminar is taught by Jim Wunderman, president and CEO of the Bay Area Council, a business-backed public policy organization.
One way faculty incorporate real-world management issues into their classes is by inviting executives from key areas of business to guest lecture. These executives candidly share their experiences, focusing on their successes abd the challenges they have faced in their careers and what they learned from the frontlines of business leadership.
Each year the School invites a senior-level, often recently retired, executive to teach a course on management strategy. The Robert A. Fox Executive-in-Residence Program gives students and faculty a unique opportunity to work closely with a top business leader. Students take the basic analytical skills they have learned in other courses and see how they apply in real business situations.
