It used to be that only top executives made strategic decisions about the company’s operations. With the increasing impact and complexity of global business, that’s no longer the case. On a daily basis, leadership at all levels must be able to design and implement resilient, strategic plans that take into account the dynamics of today’s business climate.

In response to this changing requirement, the Notre Dame Executive MBA, offered by the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame, has redesigned its curriculum to emphasize strategic-thinking skills and the ability to effect strategies through strong values-based leadership. The new curriculum will take effect in August 2011 for the incoming South Bend class of 2013 and the Notre Dame Chicago EMBA program that begins in January 2012.

“This curriculum is designed to develop a senior management perspective in our students over the course of two years,” said Paul C. Velasco, director of Notre Dame Executive Education Degree Programs. “Given the complexities and fluidity of the global business climate, effective business leaders must do more than consume information. It’s vitally important that they understand how to interpret and use information to make critical business choices on a daily basis. They must also be able to create a flexible, resilient implementation strategy.”
