At Lake Forest Graduate School of Management we enjoy a long running tradition of providing tools, training and resources to cultivate leadership skills that create measurable impact in business.
Our mission at LFGSM is to provide the best business management education possible. Academically, we strive to set our students up with a broad knowledge base in the areas that are critical for today’s evolving business environment which, in turn, can be applied in a variety of professional settings.
