Program Overview


PROGRAM UPDATE: The safety of everyone is always our top priority. The NAB Leadership Foundation is developing new and innovative ways to foster a community of diverse, creative and driven executives driving the future of our industry. We are shifting the beginning of the 2021 program into a virtual experience in response to COVID-19. Program participants will continue to learn, network and connect with program faculty, speakers and classwork through via an online platform.

If you are a senior level broadcast executive – particularly a woman or person of color – with aspirations to advance as a group executive or station owner, this executive MBA-style program will provide you with the fundamentals of purchasing, owning and running successful radio and television stations. This program teaches you the business of the business and will help you understand broadcast operations at the highest level.

This experience will help you apply proven principles to your current position and plan your future career goals. With sessions held on-demand, live online and – in 2021 – in-person, you can manage your workload and coursework at the same time.
