As the New Year approaches, you have personal resolutions, but have you stopped to formulate resolutions for your professional development? 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. Often times, through programs like Global Focus and, most recently, a U.S.-based corporate partnership, students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in real-world scenarios requiring the application of the leadership, management and analytical skills acquired at LFGSM.
