Business engagement experiences provide first-hand exposure to cross-disciplinary, real-world challenges - what it's really like to be a manager, to navigate effectively through office politics, to struggle with numerous constraints and solve messy problems, all while being an effective leader and innovative business professional.

Leaders on Leadership: The Providence College MBA Signature Course
Leaders on Leadership challenges students to think about and conceive for themselves, leadership and organizations in new ways. In this course, successful business leaders share with the students their fundamental leadership beliefs, how they came to hold these beliefs, how they actually use these beliefs to guide their actions and decision making, and the challenges they have faced in attempting to be true to these fundamental beliefs. Students have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in dialogue with these leaders.
