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?

John Scannell, CEO
Moog Inc.

“I was extremely impressed with the content and structure of the program and even more impressed with the quality of the students who were graduating from the program. I have been exposed to many different executive leadership programs over my 35 years in business and I can say that the UB program is the most comprehensive and impressive program I have seen. ”
