Program Delivery

Our regional directors describe how they help you to become a better global business leader by providing engaging, insightful, and sometimes unexpected experiences.

 

Teaming Process

In today's business world, it is critical that you know how to operate effectively and efficiently in a team; therefore, we place great importance on the team experience at Fuqua.
 
You will quickly learn that "Team Fuqua" is at the core of your experience with us. There is a culture here, and we value it and talk about it. All of us — faculty, staff, and students alike — understand and embrace that our students learn as much from one another as they do from their professors.

While you are a student at Fuqua, you will work as part of a team with 4 - 6 of your classmates. You will be assigned to a team at the start of the program, your team will change mid-way through the program, and then you will choose your own team during the elective term. Your teams will be very diverse, which will, at times, create challenges, but it will also significantly enhance your learning experience and teach you valuable life lessons about how to effectively work with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures.
