Master Classes

Our Master Classes have brought more than 1,500 next generation students together with leaders and experts — to share their insider’s views on careers and trends in an array of fields, offer their insights on leadership, and discuss the critical issues before them, and the world. From our Master Class series featuring leaders offering lessons on leadership, to our Master Class series with innovators and entrepreneurs (below), our Master Classes give next generation students a chance to learn directly from leaders, of all kinds.


Master Classes with Innovators and Entrepreneurs
