Busy professionals choose Lake Forest Graduate School of Management (LFGSM) for their MBA program because of the broad business perspectives they will gain and the leadership skills they will hone. While graduate students in the Leadership MBA program at LFGSM are not required to add a specialization to their MBA degree, we recognize that building advanced competencies in a specific concentration — or in a new field of interest — can also be important. For this reason, we offer five in-demand MBA specializations to help students deepen their expertise and advance their careers.
All LFGSM Leadership MBA students select three electives during the course of their studies. Graduate students have the option of choosing any combination of electives, or choosing a series of three electives that qualifies them for an MBA degree specialization. There is no additional time commitment or tuition expenses related to choosing specialization electives, with the exception of accelerated courses or global practicums.
