Professional Leadership Coaching

Seton Hall is believed to be the first university to offer leadership coaching strictly to competitively-selected undergraduate students. Every student in the Buccino Leadership Institute is assigned a professional leadership coach over two semesters. Together, the student and the coach make progress toward a specific goal determined by the student. 

These 14 hand-picked coaches are impressive individuals with decades of professional experience and unique skill sets. Some had careers as corporate executives for multinational corporations. Others routinely coach CEOs and C-Suite leaders in a variety of industries – pharmaceuticals, finance, law, media, and health care. There is even a former professional basketball player. All of the coaches, however, share a passionate belief in the Buccino Leadership Institute's mission and the positive impact this program can have on high-performing students. Part of the "Leadership family," many of the coaches not only coach, but are involved in the Institute’s happenings throughout the year – participating and attending program sessions, student presentations and Institute celebrations.
