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 school's Business Leadership Award, our 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.
