The Jack Welch MBA is like any other prestigious MBA. And yet, it is like no other.

Learn from Jack Welch, the CEO of CEO's winning principles.

While other schools study great business leaders, ours was built by one. At the Jack Welch Management Institute, students have a unique opportunity to learn from JWMI’s Experts of Practice, some of today’s most influential executives, many of whom were mentored directly from Jack. Jack’s winning and time-tested philosophy on leadership development, people management, and more are woven throughout every element of the program.

Built by Jack and a team of renowned business scholars from across the globe, each course is engineered to achieve the best possible student outcomes. Our recent JWMI Graduate Survey1 data revealed:

  • 98% of alumni rated their overall experience in the program Good or Excellent
  • 98% of alumni would recommend the program to others
  • 92% of alumni said their confidence as a leader has grown

JWMI students exit the program with supercharged leadership skills. It’s this formula for success that continually challenges you and your classmates with rich, relevant content—allowing you to engage in up-to-the-moment debate on emerging business news and stay on the pulse with the world economy.

The JWMI difference is unmistakable.

At JWMI, we obsess over delivering the highest value to our students. We are proud to be ranked #1 in Satisfaction with Ability to Immediately Apply What You Learn to Your Job and in Willingness to Recommend the Program by Poets & Quants.
