  • AAPI Leadership Development Program 2024

    As a Center of Inclusive Leadership housed within Executive Education at the SMU Cox School of Business, the LLI is excited to announce the pilot of a Leadership Development Program created exclusively for Asian American Pacific Islander talent. The initial pilot will take place this Fall and is available to existing corporate partners and interested parties with the required leadership approval.

    The program was created in response to interest from LLI corporate partners and developed under the leadership of Dr. Simon S. Mak, Executive Director of the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship and Professor of Practice, and Ana Rodriguez, LLI Executive Director. This new program aids in career advancement from strong individual contributor to leader of teams to business unit leader to executive.
