The Leaders of Tomorrow will Shape the Future of the Workplace

Since our inception, Business Improv has had the extreme privilege of partnering with many of the world’s best business schools. In 2000, we developed the world’s very first credit-bearing improv program (Duke Fuqua 5-Day Intensive), and we’ve run that program annually ever since. We’ve designed top-ranked Business Improv programming for 13 of the top 26 business schools in America and a half-dozen more top tier b-schools around the globe. We’ve now developed and launched credit-bearing improv programs at four amazing US business schools, offered both in-person and virtually.

We pride ourselves on our fantastic University partnerships and are humbled at the vast network of global thought leaders we have at our fingertips.  Working with world-class institutions – both in the United States and abroad – to better equip the next generation of leaders (MBAs), upskill the current workforce (Executive Education) and support organizational growth (Corporate Education) is a passion of ours.  We have tremendous experience with all levels of experience as well as tremendous experience with international and English Second Language (ESL) students.

More, our university partnerships allow us to keep our finger on the pulse of the needs and wants of an evolving workforce. This, in turn, educates our decisions, informs our approach, and guides how we continue pioneer new fronters in transformational programming. We are in a perpetual state of learning, experimentation, and development, and we are incredibly honored and grateful for the opportunity to consistently work with these incredible institutions:
