BERKELEY, Calif., Oct. 26 (AScribe Newswire) -- In a move closely aligned with its "Leading Through Innovation" strategy, the University of California, Berkeley's Haas School of Business is offering a new required course that features a sweeping assessment of each MBA student's leadership skills and a roadmap for strengthening those skills.
The Haas School began offering the new leadership course to first-year full-time MBA students Oct. 23. The centerpiece of the class is a comprehensive, 360-degree assessment of each student's leadership skills, based on nine confidential evaluations completed by former bosses, co-workers, peers, and clients before the class begins.
"We are a school of innovation, and innovation requires immense leadership talent," says Professor Jennifer Chatman, one of the Haas faculty members who developed and is teaching the new course. "The school's commitment to developing successful leaders is dramatically demonstrated by this new core course."
The new course also will be taught in the Evening & Weekend core MBA program beginning in the 2007-08 academic year. See the full article
