MBA Education's Future Leaders Program is an executive leadership development program that delivers a comprehensive curriculum for selected managers who have shown leadership interests and abilities. Participants enhance their skills through three hands-on sessions geared toward political activism; business analysis and problem solving; and experiential learning through collaboration, networking and peer group interaction. 

The program uses cutting-edge tools to enhance your leadership development, including the acclaimed Leadership Practices Inventory 360. This proven, research-based evaluation tool from leadership experts Kouzes & Posner's Leadership Challenge and Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership as its model for leadership development

The 2018 Future Leaders' program includes a day at the innovative Lincoln Leadership Institute at Gettysburg, which focuses on leadership in a stressful and changing environment. Conducted at the site of the Gettysburg battlefield itself, the Institute offers a dramatic and inspiring look at how the lessons of history can guide leaders today.

Between the valuable in-person events, MBA supports participants throughout the year via mentoring, webinars and conference call touch-points, making this a truly comprehensive leadership development experience.
