About the

Larsen Leaders Academy

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.

With student success at our core, we create a culture of achievement for high-performing business students through challenging academic programs; hands-on industry projects; professional development opportunities; and internships that prepare students for jobs with global organizations and enrollment in prestigious graduate programs.

Larsen students are accomplished, dynamic leaders prepared to make an immediate impact on our world.
