What Women Executives Must Know to Close the C-Suite Gap
This unique and experiential program is designed for senior-level women executives who aspire to the C-suite. “Ascending to the C-Suite: From Theory to Practice,” combines the world’s leading business thinkers from Michigan Ross with leading business practitioners for a transformational leadership development experience.
“Ascending to the C-Suite: From Theory to Practice” immerses you in specialized subjects whose mastery is critical for C-Suite executives yet often represent gaps in professional development for women leaders. Topics are taught with a 360-degree view by pairing renowned Michigan Ross faculty with global business leaders.
Participants will dive deep into key business topics and leadership practices while hearing unfiltered insight and first-hand stories from executive role models. Participants will share a similar breadth and depth of experience in a learning environment that will foster strategic connections and relationships beyond the classroom.
Topics that will be covered in depth include business strategic and financial acumen, social styles, positive leadership, persuasion and influence, crisis communication, and true networks.
