New Offering: Essentials of Management Leadership Program (EMLP)

For Immediate Release: October 17, 2013
Contact: Kim Keating:, 603-646-2733

The newest addition to the Tuck Executive Education portfolio, Essentials of Management Leadership Program (EMLP), is designed to develop effective leaders in general management. The immersive five-day program provides successful functional managers and new middle managers with an integrated view of the fundamentals of business, strategy and leadership.

In explaining the rationale for creating this new program, faculty director William Joyce explains, “There is no shortage of leadership programs available today. But we discovered that offerings at other schools and corporate in-house programs often fail to address what rising middle managers really need to be successful at the next level—namely the integration of ‘soft’ leadership skills combined with a broad understanding of the ‘hard’ fundamentals of business. That’s what participants will get by working with Tuck MBA faculty in EMLP.”

Participant Profile?

  • The program is specifically designed for successful functional managers with 5-10 years management experience. Participants have just taken on or are about to assume broader middle management responsibilities
  • EMLP is also appropriate for technical professionals with scientific, engineering, technology, R&D, project management, healthcare management and other technical backgrounds who are transferring to broader management

Program Takeaways

  • Learn the hard skills of business, strategy and finance combined with the softer skills of leadership, including how to influence others in the organization without direct authority
  • Become a more effective leader by moving beyond functional expertise towards executing on the broader objectives of the organization to make a bigger impact

Who are the faculty teaching in EMLP?

The same faculty who have made Tuck’s MBA program among the world’s highest ranked also teach in the Essentials of Management Leadership Program. They are highly accessible during the program and care deeply about helping participants develop their business acumen and self-awareness as a leader.

William “Bill” Joyce is the program’s faculty director. An expert on strategy and organizational design, Bill is joined by Tuck’s top faculty in the areas of leadership, influence, finance, operations, marketing and strategy.

Dates and Location

EMLP will be held November 17-22 at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, in Hanover, NH. For more information, please visit the program website or contact us.
