BUMO 712: Leadership Development 

“BUMO 712 was definitely a huge help for me. I keep my notes handy and often refer to my personality assessments for insights. In fact, I would say this course definitely contributed to my garnering a major promotion last fall where I now run our professional services division and report directly to our CEO!”

Silas M., MBA 2007, DC campus

BUMO 725: Networks and Influence 

“The networking, leadership, and ability to relate well to others that you learn in BUMO 725 are relevant to virtually any career. The course heightened my self-awareness and my understanding of my surroundings. I became a different person after completing this course and only regret that I did not take it earlier in my life!”
