What is the Future Leaders Program?
Participants in the California MBA Future Leaders Program will benefit from a transformative, customized academic and leadership experience through our partnership with Pepperdine University’s Graziadio Business School. The small (maximum 20) cohort of participants will engage in two hands-on, customized, in-person sessions at Pepperdine’s Malibu campus, geared towards the behavioral and practical elements of effective leadership. The program will also bring participants to a host of California MBA conferences and events, broadening their range of knowledge and skills; the cohort also participates in exclusive webinars customized for the group’s specific makeup and needs; small groups prepare a practical, comprehensive final project; and the program connects participants with multiple mentors in the industry, further increasing their network and returning them a more valuable employee and a true leader to their company.

Hear From The Class of 2019
After attending the Future Leaders Program with the California MBA I was surprised at the depth of the self-work gained from the course. I’m sure most attendees envision a less introspective, less academic focus on leadership skills when they arrive in the class on the first day, as I did. Upon leaving I had a much better understanding of my own leadership skills and was able to evolve and improve them in ways I hadn’t imagined possible. Absolutely worth every.single.minute.
The Future Leaders Program is thought-provoking, hands on and will ultimately leave you inspired. You will immediately feel more influential and confident to carry out the many actionable take-aways you amass during this program. The worthwhile information, experiences and relationships you gain from this program are an asset to both your professional and personal life. If the opportunity arises for you to participate in this program then I encourage you to do so, anyone and everyone will find it beneficial.
The Future Leaders program combined industry activism, interactive leadership development, as well as networking opportunities with Industry leaders. I was able to build relationships and gain new perspectives from MBA board members that I may not otherwise have had exposure to. I also enjoyed building lasting relationships with my project team members from other organizations in various business channels. I feel that it has had an impact on my personal growth as a leader, as well as my career.
The California MBA Future Leaders Program gave me many opportunities for access to current leaders in the mortgage industry. Whether the interaction was in the setting of legislative day, a meal, a convention, a presentation, the group project, a phone call, or a video meeting, the time with these intelligent and driven people was invaluable. I found the leaders I met through the Program events to not only be willing to provide mentorship, or to give of their time, but eager to contribute to my career.
The program also provided exposure to parts of the industry that I would likely not learn about on my own. The Future Leaders Program is a well-thought out and well-executed way to get a bit outside of your comfort zone, where growth happens.
