Entrepreneurial Leadership and Innovation: Faculty Growth Program for Asia
The world is experiencing increased levels of change and growth across regions and industries, creating a VUCAH (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous, and Hyperconnected) environment that offers opportunities, disruption, and challenges. Consequently, this new world requires a different type of leader—the Entrepreneurial Leader. The Entrepreneurial Leader is someone who can navigate through uncertainty to create an innovative culture that advances organizations.
In Babson’s Entrepreneurial Leadership and Innovation Faculty Growth Program, faculty across disciplines will gain the confidence, expertise, and pedagogy to develop entrepreneurial leaders who will drive growth through innovation. In this program, participants will:
- Gain Multi-Dexterous Expertise: Develop proficiency in the areas of entrepreneurial leadership, innovation, and digital transformation
