About the Program:

Leadership Crisis Challenge powered by the Sanger Leadership Center, March 17-18, 2022
The Leadship Crisis Challenge prepares you to lead in high-pressure, high-stakes environments. You will be immersed in a simulated business and media crisis where you will test your ability to strategize through extreme turbulence, think on your feet, and demonstrate poise under pressure.

Open to any U-M undergraduate student, Crisis Challenge prepares you to lead in high-pressure, high-stakes environments. You will be immersed in a simulated business and media crisis where you will test your ability to strategize through extreme turbulence, think on your feet, and demonstrate poise under pressure.

You and your team will play the part of senior executives tasked with responding to the crisis as it unfolds: you’ll receive emails, social media updates, phone calls and more throughout Thursday night. Then, on Friday, you’ll come to Michigan Stadium to present your strategy to your board of directors (made up of esteemed U-M alums), journalists, and the public. Along the way, you’ll receive personalized feedback from business leaders, communication coaches, and faculty experts.

Student Story



"I didn't know what to expect coming into the LCC, and I was worried that my non-business background would make me the weak link of my team. It turned out that my experience in environmental science was a huge strength, and I brought a unique perspective to my team that helped us strategize, navigate problems, and address complex questions. My take-away is that not all problems have a clear-cut solution, and it's never a bad idea to think outside of the box and get really creative with your solutions. I was so glad to have participated in this competition, and I'm proud of myself for stepping out of my comfort zone and tackling LCC with enthusiasm." -T.C. Knowles, LSA 2020
