The Professional Advancement Course (PAC) in the GEMBA curriculum is designed to help executive MBAs adopt new behaviors and reach their potential as managers and leaders. There are two components:
Executive Leadership Coaching
As part of the Leadership Practicum component of PAC, you will identify and overcome a leadership challenge you are currently facing in your workplace. Learn more about Darden's executive leadership coaching.
Designed to help you take charge of your career, the Career Advancement component of PAC supports you in engaging in new behaviors which proactively advance your career and the careers of the employees you manage — today or in the future. You will:
- explore why some careers continually rise, while others plateau or peak and then decline.
- learn a set of principles which guide career decision-making, for you and your employees.
- establish your post-MBA career goals and develop strategies and tactics for achieving them.
If you seek the requisite knowledge and skills to move from one company to another (in a similar or different role), you may enroll in the optional (not-for-credit) seminar titled Job Search Launch. Visit Career Transition Resources for more information.
