Help create a world in which everyone can flourish through leadership that is

Help create a world in which everyone can flourish through leadership that is

We’re on a mission to transform business education to create leaders who honor individual dignity, demonstrate the courage to care for others, and work toward shared wellbeing on a healthy planet.

We believe business is the best means to address the urgent problems of the day. That means equipping tomorrow’s business leaders with more than mere technical skills. Society’s challenges call for us to reshape business education to develop leaders who are champions for human development and planetary flourishing.

Humanistic leadership is no longer a choice of leadership style; it is the way our business leaders must lead to bring about a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and the health of our planet is preserved.
