The workshops are a great way to add polish to your business toolkit. I took several to strengthen my skills in communication, leadership, and persuasion. They are led by industry leaders, flexible around an MBA’s schedule, and provide superior content.

One workshop I took that really stands out was ‘Managing Difficult Conversations.’ I’m conflict averse and I knew that was something I needed to work on. Learning the principles and then role-playing and getting feedback right on the spot was really helpful. I was able to use what I learned right away.
