Lessons in Leadership is an annual networking event delivered by the Executive MBA Program. Over the past 23 years, Lessons in Leadership has featured prominent Atlanta business leaders participating in a panel discussion on various leadership topics. The intent is to give the audience access to the views of high-level leaders whose companies maintain a presence in the Metro Atlanta market.
The 24th Annual Lessons in Leadership returns to the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre on February 29, 2024. This event draws 300-500 attendees, including current students, alumni, and the local business community.
