On the McCombs MBA Leadership Expedition, you will hone practical leadership strategies and technical outdoor skills over 10 days of travel amongst the isolated mountain valleys, ragged icy peaks, and brawling rivers of Patagonia. On a daily basis you will be challenged to exercise individual decisiveness while simultaneously facilitating excellent teamwork, skills relevant to school and business. This wilderness expedition supports McCombs classroom curriculum by providing lessons that are immediate and lasting.
From McCombs: The Patagonia Leadership Development Class will teach students leadership and offer an opportunity to practice these skills in an ambiguous environment. Although many classes on leadership introduce frameworks, skills, and approaches that are integral to leadership effectiveness, this class enables students to put into practice their personal leadership philosophy and gain significant feedback from students, alumni and trained coaches. The class will feature a classroom component consisting of four class sessions and a field component, which will take place in Patagonia, Chile from January 6-15, 2017. The class sessions are intended to facilitate self-reflection on students' leadership approach and goals for this unique experience. The field component is intended to provide the opportunity to enact such approach and assess the critical factors enabling students' effectiveness in achieving success as leaders.
