"This program was an incredible experience. Put under pressure with a team of students we had never met before, it encouraged us to come together quickly and develop strong bonds in a short time frame. Gaining feedback from industry professionals was extremely useful and I learned a lot. I highly recommend this experience to anyone."

Testimonials

"If you are questioning whether or not you should take the Sanger Leadership Crisis Challenge, the answer is yes. Everyone was either a little nervous or scared going into this experience. The teams, coaches, and feedback were all well worth the time. The experience with the board members and the press was nothing short of amazing. These people are all leaders in their industry and have given their time to develop future business leaders."
