First, we want to WELCOME you to Duke University and the Fuqua School of Business. Your decision to join us in the CCMBA program comes at a time when global competence is increasingly critical to becoming leader of consequence.

In this brief video, Fuqua School of Business Dean Blair Sheppard shares his insights on how leaders of consequence develop based on mutual acceptance of responsibility on the part of both the institution and the individual:

Also, for those of you who have not yet seen our brief “While You Were Sleeping” video, please take a moment to view it now as it clearly outlines why we are in the midst of executing a strategy to become the first Globally Distributed Business school.

Now, onto the real work!

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the CCMBA Culture, Civilizations and Leadership course blog where we will be posting rich-media sources we find relevant to the topics we will be discussing in the course.

We have created separate pages that cover the following topics for your review prior to getting together in London.

  1. Very insightful.

    Duke’s cross continent push is the most daring innovation in education I have seen in my life time.

    It is not just talk, talk but real global action.

    I am proud to be a part of this unique experiment.
