[This article is based on David Springate’s presentation at the 2002 E.M.B.A. Council meeting in Keystone, Colorado, USA.]

The premise of this article is that we can help develop leadership among the business men and women that are our executive students and, at the same time, serve society and the economy better if we move to modify Executive MBA programs given recent events. Given corporate and ethical lapses by some executives, our programs need some new emphasis, courses and exposures. Parts of our existing programs need tweaking. Further there is need for increased emphasis on judgment formation. I offer below some suggestions for doing this and, also, results of a quick look for changes recently instituted in Executive MBA programs.
