Wharton Partnership

An important collaboration

Stonier’s partnership with the world-renowned Wharton School helps deliver outstanding leadership courses to our students. Wharton brings additional perspectives and insights on how to effectively lead in a world of continuous change.

From understanding the art of influence and persuasion to learning critical thinking for leaders, highly-interactive courses led by Wharton faculty prepare attendees to make decisions in an atmosphere of increasing time pressure and uncertainty. The courses are seamlessly integrated with the rest of the Stonier program and graduates receive both a Stonier Diploma and a Wharton Leadership Certificate.

Real-world knowledge and experience

Wharton delivers the breadth and depth of knowledge needed to address the realities of leadership in today’s volatile market, and its faculty members have experience working directly with leading companies and policy makers around the world.

Dr. Mario Moussa, Academic Director for the Wharton Leadership Program, specializes in large-scale organizational changes. He says learning more about why people follow through — and why they don’t — is key to improving execution success rates. He is the co-author of The Art of Woo: Using Strategic Persuasion to Sell Your Ideas, and has published widely in the field of organizational dynamics, power, and influence.
