The Business Leaders Learning Community is designed to provide students with an opportunity to bond with fellow Krannert students interested in building a strong foundation of leadership skills and knowledge. This Learning Community will give students the opportunity to connect to the School of Management from the beginning of their collegiate career. These students will interact with current business leaders and Krannert Alumni to learn what it takes to be successful in today's business world. Participants will take their first management course with fellow Learning Community members along with their first year composition course. Students will also be introduced to the concepts in the Launching Business Leaders initiative that will help focus their improved development and teach them where to begin to take those skills to the level that they need to be successful leaders and business persons. Participating in the residential component will provide additional means of interacting with the LC cohort that will enhance their first-year experience.
