The Saunders College of Business at Rochester Institute of Technology recently launched the Leadership Academy, a collegewide peer mentorship program.
Registration is open for the spring Foundational Leadership for Career Success Certificate program.
Curriculum features access to a team of university faculty and industry leaders, and will incorporate learning in and out of the traditional classroom setting. Sessions will be held on Tuesday nights starting Jan. 28, and include an Imagine RIT: Creativity and Innovation Festival project challenge and a closing celebration dinner.
Students will work on effective communication, presentation skills, goal setting, conflict management, self-advocacy, critical thinking and problem-solving, and integrity and professionalism.
The Academy hosts programs geared toward alumni and working professionals, including the women-focused Step Forward leadership program in January and events for high school students interested in pursuing business studies. Other programs will debut this spring.
