History

Fordham Road Collaborative

 

FRC grew out of an effort in 2010 to help professional educators develop technical skills. Robert Brancatelli and David Gautschi, dean of Fordham University's Graduate School of Business, created a course that also attracted executives from companies like General Electric and AT&T who wanted to develop the vocational aspect of their careers. The course quickly changed focus from technical skills to leadership.

Today, FRC works with clients in a variety of industries such as retail, insurance, financial services, and higher education. We focus on virtue and its impact on leadership and performance.
