Building C-Suite Literacy

To operate as an executive, you need to do more than learn the language of business. Instead, you must be conversant in C-suite strategies, including the ability to create value, embrace change, manage risk, drive growth, encourage innovation, develop talent, and plan for your organization’s next generation of leaders.

Teaching you these differentiated skills is what Olin’s executive education programs are all about.

C-suite literacy not only helps you clarify your corporate vision, it also enables you to shape corporate values that build employee loyalty and trust.

Gain C-suite fluency

During your 20 months in the Executive MBA program, you cover the expected business functions and quantitative skills, but you also become fluent in qualitative skills like communication, collaboration, and conflict resolution. And you gain the emotional intelligence to maintain strong relationships with internal and external stakeholders.

Nondegree offerings include Difficult Conversations, Manage Operational Excellence for Competitive Advantage, and Leading through Influence. View nondegree offerings.
