What is the Leadership Crisis Challenge?
Crisis Challenge prepares you to lead in high-pressure, high-stakes environments. You will be immersed in a simulated business and media crisis where will you test your ability to strategize through extreme turbulence, think on your feet, and demonstrate poise under pressure. You and your team will play the part of senior executives tasked with responding to the crisis as it unfolds: you’ll receive emails, social media updates, phone calls and more throughout Thursday night.
Then, on Friday, you’ll come to Michigan Stadium to present your strategy to your board of directors (made up of esteemed U-M alums), journalists, and the public. Along the way, you receive personalized feedback from business leaders, communication coaches, and faculty experts.
Leadership Crisis Challenge is made possible by the generous support of PNC Bank.
