Only the UB MBA prepares you with the MBA LeaderCORE certification and micro-credential.

What is at the CORE of every great leader?

That's what the University at Buffalo School of Management has been asking corporate recruiters for decades. We know that corporate leaders want business school graduates with skills beyond industry knowledge and technical ability.

MBA LeaderCORE  is a selective personal and professional development journey that runs concurrently with your four semesters in the UB MBA program. Throughout the process, we focus on the real world and you, with an emphasis on developing the skills employers have identified as critical for future leaders.

Why MBA LeaderCORE?

“This is exactly what business schools need to be doing. Students who can work effectively both within teams and in leading teams will always be in high demand. MBA LeaderCORE will ensure this development occurs before they enter the workforce. ”
