As a business leader on the rise, you understand that success is about what you know and who you know. The WSU Executive MBA Leadership Conference in Seattle is a true difference-maker on both counts. This optional event features presentations from prominent subject matter experts and special guest speakers, but it's more than a learning experience. The Leadership Conference is an exciting opportunity to meet your peers and network with classmates, faculty, alumni, and the rest of the Cougar Community.
