The innovative non-profit organization dedicated to helping elevate the quality of leadership in the world, FRED Inc., is pleased to announce that New York University’s Stern School of Business has joined its roster of top global business schools in the FRED Scholars(SM) program.
FRED Scholars(SM) enables non-profit/NGO leaders to attend leading global business school executive education and leadership development programs alongside global executives and high potential managers from across the business spectrum.
“It’s an honor to have NYU participate in the FRED Scholars(SM) program to provide amazing development opportunities to leaders who would otherwise be unable to attend due to a lack of funding,” said Jim Bolt, CEO of FRED, Inc. “With NYU, we now have nine top business schools from around the world participating in the FRED Scholars program,” added Bolt.
NYU is offering a scholarship to its two-day program in leadership development for high potential leaders on March 14-15 at the university’s New York City campus in Greenwich Village. The program teaches analytical frameworks in leadership and applies them to real-life leadership challenges.

And we look forward to seeing the impact that the FRED Scholars program has in the years ahead,” added Bolt.
