What are the 3 qualities that you want to see in leaders coming up through your business?

  • I look for creativity, determination and empathy. Creativity is needed to reach our audiences and compel them to respond in some way amongst so much market noise and messaging. Determination is needed to remove any roadblocks and strive to outperform. Empathy is even more important now to coach and mentor our teams and help them to reach their potential.

What role can an MBA play in building better business?

  • The MBA will set up the leaders of the future who we need to successfully navigate a complex and changing business environment. The Exeter MBA has a focus on design thinking and pursuing the circular economy. This is only going to be more important in the years ahead.
