Business Leadership Program

To lead you must have followers.

To have followers you must persuade.

To persuade you must understand.

To understand you must listen.

These simple truths form the foundation of the Business Leadership Program (BLP). Superior leadership skills give FCB students a significant boost in their business careers. The BLP helps students gain the skills, knowledge, and personal characteristics necessary for leadership. Regardless of their personal goals, understanding how to lead will help our students achieve success.

Leadership is the art and science of getting others to do what they would otherwise not do. Over the course of three years (beginning with the sophomore year) the BLP helps students learn to lead.

Year 1: Listening: To understand, you must listen.

Year 2: Understanding: To persuade, you must understand.

Year 3: Persuasion: To have followers, you must persuade.
