BUSINESS AND BEYOND At Hult, you’ll learn about yourself We all have strengths and weaknesses, so at Hult you’ll learn how you can improve on both. You can improve anything with practice The fact is, we all have things we’re good at and things we struggle with. Many of these attributes are determined by our genes and our upbringing. But at Hult, we believe that rather than just accepting these are impossible to change, it’s important to realize that we can build on our strengths and overcome our weaknesses. Because, as with any skill, we can improve with practice. Skills such as being able to communicate clearly, being able to work in teams, influence others, and simplify complex problems are as important to success in business as having knowledge of the fundamental disciplines, such as finance, marketing, and operations. At Hult, you’ll work on both types of skills. Students put their creative problem-solving skills to the test in a team challenge. Learn to lead We’ve taken advanced practices from leadership development courses and built them into all our degree programs. It’s this approach that earned us the 2014 AMBA Innovation Award. During the early part of your program, you’ll examine your personal attributes and what your strengths and weaknesses are on a number of leadership dimensions. Then, throughout the rest of the program, you’ll be given the opportunity to focus on a selection of key skills that you’ll improve through practice as well as faculty guidance, peer-to-peer feedback, and professional coaching. Graduate with a growth mindset No matter what your starting point on each of these key leadership skills, you can improve through constant practice and feedback. This proven technique means that you’ll not only be more self-aware and able to make better decisions, you’ll also be able to see your behaviors changing and feel your effectiveness in groups and organizations increasing.
