This program is interested in students not becoming conventional leaders, but rather a new, different type of leader: one who, beyond seeking to transform the business world, has an impact on the world as such. That’s why at Duke students “develop excellent skills to analyze different options, have an open mind to appreciate different perspectives, and a new way of working by taking advantage of the strengths of others.” This teamwork approach enables Fuqua graduates to excel in inspiring organizations to do what they do best.
One characteristic is its flexible curriculum, which, by offering fewer core classes, allows you to take any of 16 different concentrations, such as: Sciences of Decision Making; Energy and Environment; Energy Finance; Accounting; Financial Technologies; Social Entrepreneurship; Entrepreneurship and Innovation; Finance – in any of its 3 modalities: corporate, investment, or dual; Ethics and Leadership; etc.
