To advance to the highest levels of leadership, I needed to boost…fundamentals like finance, strategic planning, and organizational dynamics. I left the program with those core skills, deep insights into innovation and technology strategy, and a tight-knit global network of classmates in almost every industry.Iris Bombelyn, SF ’09
