BENEFITING: Lead Program In Business
The Columbia Business School hosted the Leadership Education And Development program for several years. During this program, scholars resided and attended classes on-campus for two to four weeks. The program engages scholars in an intense, hands-on curriculum incorporating case studies, business plans and team projects. It provided scholars with first-hand knowledge and experiences from business professionals and Columbia business school professors. It also linked LEAD scholars to corporate executives in the business world and sets the stage for LEADers to form lifelong bond with peers with similar aspirations and abilities. Scholars explore topics on finance, entrepreneurship, accounting and marketing, among other business sectors.
