Personal Development and Team-based Learning

Reflecting the way business works today, Smith School of Business uses an innovative approach to learning that enhances understanding of group and cultural dynamics, builds self-awareness and effectiveness, and develops understanding of how business teams can perform best.

In both physical and virtual contexts, team-based projects are used to build and strengthen these skills.

A dedicated, professional Team Coach is assigned to every program team. Throughout the year, they will monitor your team’s effectiveness and provide regular feedback and guidance that is pivotal to the learning process.

You will be provided with proven processes and best practices for overcoming any obstacles that may arise during the year.

“The Smith Master of Financial Innovation & Technology program helped me to learn new technical skills, which combined with my financial background, led to a promotion where I am directly applying the technical skills I learned. I really appreciated the support from Faculty, and my teammates, during my time in the program.”
