Executive Education in the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame will present the first program in its new International Leadership Series at the Notre Dame London Centre on Friday and Saturday (Jan. 12 and 13).

Titled “Leadership in a Revolutionary Age,” the seminar will examine and draw important leadership lessons from the American Revolutionary period (1776 to 1815). A faculty composed of British and American historians will immerse participants in the context of the time, challenging them to think in new ways, and develop an enhanced understanding of, and appreciation for, the skills required to lead wisely, boldly, and successfully through times of tumultuous change. The program also will assess current leadership issues in America, Britain and Europe.

Jeremy Black, professor of history at the University of Exeter, and Peter Onuf, Thomas Jefferson Foundation Professor of History at the University of Virginia, will lead the program.

“The American Revolutionary period offers extraordinary opportunities for assessing leadership and the obstacles and constraints leaders on both sides of the Atlantic confronted as they faced unprecedented widespread and revolutionary change,” said William Brewster, director of international programs for Executive Education. “We are very fortunate that these scholars, both of whom are dynamic presenters, have agreed to join us in London for this fascinating, and timely, examination of leadership characteristics that can determine success – or failure.”
