Focus on Creative and Effective Leadership

CU Executive MBA partners with the Center for Creative Leadership. CCL brings exclusive focus on leadership, education, research, and unparalleled expertise in solving leadership challenges of individuals and organizations.

Creative leadership is the capacity to think and act beyond the boundaries that limit our effectiveness. Every leader and organization faces obstacles that are difficult to surmount - from corporate executives confronting the complex global marketplace to educators trying to lift student achievement to nonprofit groups and government agencies addressing critical social issues with tight budgets. CCL believes that solutions to these challenges exist and has helped clients unlock them through creative leadership.

CCL's expertise in creative leadership combined with the experience and insights offered by CU faculty, develop our students’ ability to be dynamic leaders, broaden their business perspectives on a micro and macro level, and enhance their understanding of the competitive and business implications of the current global economy.


The University of Colorado Executive MBA balances a strong quantitative core (finance, accounting, economics, and statistics) and significant emphasis on leadership, specifically on the skills and perspective required to transitition to executive leadership.
