An award-winning MBA leadership program

Leadership in the real world

Leadership, more than any other area of business, is about practical skills—not theory. We interviewed 100 of the world’s leading CEOs to find out what business graduates need in order to be effective leaders in today’s workplace. We then built a leadership development program based on these insights, which is fully integrated into your masters program.

An award-winning approach

Self-assessments, personality and leadership diagnostics, and coaching will assess your skills, but the real work happens throughout your core program. You’ll learn to reflect on your performance, see it evolve, and come to welcome experiences as growth opportunities. It’s a groundbreaking approach that won Hult the Association of MBAs (AMBA) Innovation Award.

Peer feedback, structured coaching

Like the real world, where colleagues shape your professional development, peer feedback is central to leadership development at Hult. You’ll be part of a small group who will observe each other and feedback on each other’s performance, practice skills together, and support each other at every step. Your coach will also be on hand to run workshops and help you reflect on your performance.
