MBA Leadership Training
Those pursuing a Masters in Business Administration are going to be business leaders in the years to come. This leadership training event will help our MBA students to fine-tune their leadership capabilities through a program delivered by Odyssey Teams, Inc. Through a series of team building exercises and ropes course challenges, our students learn to push beyond their fears, learn to trust a team, fine-tune their communication and camaraderie, and ultimately become better leaders through self-reflection. The event is held 20 minutes away in Paradise, CA but the experience takes our students much further than that!
