We equip you with the confidence to reach out and grasp opportunities wherever you see them, and create opportunities where none may be visible.The Zicklin Executive MBA is a 22-month program designed for today's high–potential executives, business leaders and career professionals who want to make a difference in their organizations, in their businesses, and in the world at large.
