Broad Executive Development Programs empower women leaders to excel

The Broad College of Business is on a mission to develop global transformational leaders who positively impact organizations and society — and women make up a growing network of business leaders today.

To help advance the careers of women and support workplace diversity, the Broad College offers two complementary online programs, Women in Executive Leadership and Women in Senior Executive Leadership, through Executive Development Programs.

“Recruiting a diverse workforce provides an organization with unique viewpoints and problem-solving ability,” David Frayer, assistant dean for outreach and engagement, said. “We’re pleased to be able to offer programs like these to help women excel in today’s workplace.”

Now entering a third year, both programs are offered virtually each fall, bringing together women leaders across industries to provide them with opportunities to be empowered and to excel. The programs help participants perform at a higher level in their careers and provide the tools to support other leaders within their organizations.

Women in Executive Leadership is designed for individuals with five to 10 years of experience, and Women in Senior Executive Leadership benefits women with 10 or more years of experience. Both programs include the latest research from Michigan State University faculty in the fields of leadership, emotional intelligence, communication, negotiation and inclusion.
