The Fundamentals + The Future

Columbia Business School’s Executive Development Program: Leading Into the Future first provides a solid foundation on the fundamentals of business: economics, strategy, finance, marketing, operations, and leadership. Then, the program takes a deeper dive allowing participants the opportunity to get immersed in the critical issues and topics of today whose understanding is paramount to future success (e.g. the future of work, climate, blockchain, and cybersecurity). Get in-depth and research-led analysis from faculty at the forefront of these dynamic areas — who are also world-leaders in their field — while also hearing from expert practitioners that Columbia Business School is able to access because of our unique networks and location in New York City. 

Leadership for Business & Beyond

In today’s challenging world, leadership is needed now more than ever. With emerging technology, new industries, and a transforming workforce, organizations will need to adapt. It’s leadership that will effectively implement these necessary transformations. While leadership can be learned, there is no cookie-cutter one-size-fits-all technical approach that works for everyone. The model of an individual all-knowing leader is too limited for modern times. And leadership skills go beyond the workplace. They show up in many aspects of life. The key is paying attention to what’s going on around you and knowing how your individual skills can be implemented in these situations. The Executive Development Program provides the personalized tools you need to make a difference in every single room you enter and with each person you speak with.

Interactions That Inspire

Columbia Business School’s Executive Development Program: Leading Into the Future is interactive. Engage in cultivated exchanges with faculty and your peers — executives from different sectors, cultures, and countries — who will provide diverse perspectives and insights.

Effectively Navigate a Complex World

Empowerment comes from having the knowledge you need and the right tools to get the job done. Columbia Business School’s Executive Development Program: Leading Into the Future, provides a clear vision of the landscape, the technologies, the social disruptions, and the social change and transformations that are relevant to business. Get a deeper understanding of essential trends that may dramatically alter how business is conducted in the future including the future of finance (e.g. cryptocurrency), managing a future workforce, reflecting on technology strategy, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and analytics.

Associate Professor of Business, Columbia Business School

Dan Wang is Associate Professor of Business and (by courtesy) Sociology at Columbia Business School, where he is also the incoming Faculty Co-Director of the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise.  His research examines how social networks drive social and economic transformation through the analysis of global migration, social movements, organizational innovation, and entrepreneurship. He teaches the core MBA Strategy Formulation course, an elective MBA course on Technology Strategy, a PhD seminar on Organizational Theory. He also teaches in several Executive Education programs on Social Networks and Technology Strategy. He earned his BA from Columbia University (Columbia College) and PhD from Stanford University. 

He received the 2020 Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching in the Core and the 2018 Singhvi Prize for Scholarship in the Classroom, Columbia Business School’s top teaching honor conferred by the graduating MBA class.  He was also named to Poets and Quants’ 2018 list of “Best 40 Business School Professors under 40.” In 2021, he received the Robert W. Lear Service Award, given by the graduating class for his commitment to the MBA student body.

Wang’s research lies at the intersection of business and society with a focus on innovation and entrepreneurship. One of his main research streams focuses on the global migration of high-skilled individuals.  Specifically, Wang studies “reverse brain drain”, or how the return migration of skilled professionals spreads ideas, technologies, and new ventures to different parts of the world.  Another research area focuses on how social protest and activism create an interface between business and society. In this work, Wang has analyzed collaboration networks across social movements to predict innovation, knowledge sharing, strategic choices, and protest scope across activist groups.  Finally, in on-going work on entrepreneurship, he has analyzed the implications of different network structures of venture capital syndication for the innovation output and financial performance of start-ups.
