Executive Education: Communication for Leaders

As a former political campaign spokesperson, Dorie Clark has seen politicians lose elections when a communication slip quickly derailed the politician's brand. Through Communication for Leaders, she will coach you in how to communicate the message you intend--in person, through the media, in a high-pressured question and answer session … even through your online presence.

Alumni Career Outcomes Survey: Share Your Career Path

Fuqua wants to learn more about your pre-Fuqua profession, the role you secured immediately after graduation, and your professional life today. Genevieve Lupton MBA '16, in partnership with professor Kim Wade-Benzoni, has developed a 15-20 minute survey that will further research about MBA career decision-making and enable Fuqua's Career Management Center to offer compensation benchmarks and other insights specific to the Fuqua alumni community. Responses will be analyzed in aggregate. The deadline to complete this survey is September 1.
