The Larsen Leaders Academy

Leadership is the ability to guide others toward achieving a vision or goal. Those who can lead experience great career success. It’s a quality many desire, but only a select few truly possess.

The Larsen Leaders Academy will provide you with the tools to set you apart and position yourself on the radar of top companies seeking talent. It will translate your academic experiences—coursework, extracurriculars, case competitions, domestic and international travel, internships and more—into real-world leadership skills. You’ll discover more about yourself and your abilities than you thought possible.

When recruiters ask, “What have you done in the last four years?” you’ll have a compelling story to tell. You’ll have the talent, will and leadership experiences to set you apart. Your four years of dedication will grow into a successful business career lasting 10 times longer.

Become a Larsen Leader. Find your “why” to lead the way.

Marshall and Susan Larsen

The Marshall and Susan Larsen Leaders Academy was established in 2018 thanks to the generosity of Marshall Larsen (MSIA’77) and his wife, Susan.

Marshall was chief executive officer of Goodrich and was named one of the “100 best-performing CEOs in the world” by Harvard Business Review. He received the Krannert Business Leadership Award, the school’s highest honor, in 2022.

The Larsens are committed to supporting high-achieving business students and often return to campus to spend time with LLA participants.


"Larsen Leaders Academy introduced me to like-minded, hardworking, and dedicated people, and gave me access to special events that have enriched my education outside of the classroom."
