  • Developing Food System Leaders

  • Food is Everybody's Business

    It sustains our bodies, defines our cultures, feeds our senses. Food touches virtually every aspect of human society: from individual habits to national policy, local to global ecosystems, economies to education. But our food system is imperiled, and with it our survival. It's a multigenerational challenge that demands a different breed of leader. Could that be you?

    It Takes a Village

    Top practitioners from the worlds of business, tech and design join forces with faculty from the nation’s top business schools to help you develop the skills, mindset and network you need to transform your ideas into successful businesses. Their collective wisdom, gleaned from failures as much as success, drives your development.

    To Do is to Learn
    To Do Right is to Lead

    At FBS, we make business. We dream big and delve deep. We marry acumen to artistry, take theory to the field, and regard play as a serious way to learn. Online, in person, through individual and collaborative work, you experiment, debate, ideate, prototype, iterate, reflect, create and critique every aspect of food systems, business and leadership.
