“I’ve learned as much in the classroom as out of it! I didn’t expect to have such an incredible cohort — I knew that my classmates would be smart, but I didn’t know how much they’d teach me on a daily basis. Our team-based work outside of the class has been incredibly valuable.”

“Being a leader is a perpetual vow of growth. Daniels provides an abundance of growth opportunities, as well as a stage to uncover strengths and weaknesses. It’s what you’re blind to that often holds you back, and for me, the process of uncovering things about yourself has transitioned from frightening to enlightening. Daniels has played a huge part in that.”

“There are lots of options our there for Executive Education but we chose Daniels specifically because the faculty were very keen on what our business challenges were and what we were trying to achieve. They customized the curriculum to address our company’s challenges.”
