Values-Based Leadership

VBLWhy an emphasis on values-based leadership in the Valpo MBA program? Values-based leadership has always been a critical attribute of successful business women and men.  But recent high-profile corporate scandals have left the public skeptical about the trustworthiness of business leaders.

At Valpo, we believe ethical leadership is required to earn public trust.  And when combined with current radical market restructuring and the rapid rise and decline of new firms and entire industries, it is clear that  leaders with solid ethical frameworks will be in demand.

VBLAs a leader, your personal moral compass will guide you in making values-based decisions that positively affect your company and community. Our challenging coursework and thought-provoking classroom discussions enable you to build these values-based leadership skills that are in high demand in today's business world.   After you finish your MBA, you may wish to get a Certificate in Sustainability.

Part of values-based leadership is making decisions that will help to better the world. To see the difference Valparaiso University is making, watch the video on EngineersWithout Borders and their trip to Kenya where students' innovation helped bring water and growing crops to a village plagued by draught.
